No-Fault Litigation

Overview

The Transportation and No-Fault Law Practice Group has been helping the insurance and risk management profession respond to transportation-related claims for decades.

Our attorneys have an acute knowledge of the Michigan No-Fault Insurance Act, and successfully resolve claims and potential claims under the Act. Over the years, we have effectively resolved thousands of transportation matters involving catastrophic and large loss property damage, insurance, indemnity, and subrogation issues.

Our attorneys routinely evaluate and defend “threshold injury” claims for non-economic damages brought under Section 3135 of the Michigan No-Fault Insurance Act. Our ability to evaluate and vigorously defend injury claims is enhanced by substantial in-house resources, including one of Michigan’s finest technical medical libraries, a support staff including RNs and LPNs, and the medical resources developed and maintained with our Health Law and Workers’ Compensation Law Practice Groups.

We consistently monitor legislative activity affecting the No-Fault Insurance Act and regularly provide educational seminars, articles, and reference materials to keep clients informed on relevant developments. We have also developed a close working relationship with investigating police officers, as well as experts in the fields of accident reconstruction, biomechanics, mechanical engineering, toxicology, computer reconstruction programs, meteorology, perception, and forensic pathology.
