“In July 2020, Michigan made some significant changes to its no-fault system. However, this is mostly a positive thing for Michigan drivers, as the state had the highest car insurance costs in the country in 2020.
Some of the advantages of the law changes are as follows:
- Insurance companies are legally required to lower their average personal injury protection (PIP) premiums by up to 45%.
- Liability insurance has higher minimum limits of 50/100/10.
- Maximum liability insurance limits are 250/500/10.
Although the higher liability coverage minimums may increase your rates, the significant drop in PIP should lead to lower premiums.
