FR Settles Michigan No-Fault Insurance Bad Faith Case for $25 Million

Friedman | Rubin has obtained a $25 Million settlement in the Southwest United States involving Michigan no-fault insurance benefits on behalf of a former resident of Michigan catastrophically injured in a motor vehicle accident. (The confidentiality terms prohibit further identification of the parties or settlement terms).

Since, 1972, Michigan law has provided for unlimited medical expenses to individuals insured under Michigan’s no-fault automotive insurance law and catastrophically injured in a motor vehicle accident. Medical expenses may include attendant care for those requiring some level of assistance with daily living, whether that assistance is provided by friends, family members, nurses or attendant care providers. When injured individuals have been unreasonably denied benefits after moving to other states, the insurance company may be responsible for resulting harms or subject to punitive damages. Friedman | Rubin assists individuals in obtaining the benefits to which they are entitled and punishing insurers who do not follow the rules.
