No-Fault benefit notice requirements

Published: 9/22/2015

No-Fault benefits provide wage loss and medical / services reimbursements for victims of automobile injuries. However, there are strict limits on these claims. MCLA 500.3125 provides that a suit cannot be commenced for recovery of personal protection insurance benefits later than 1 year after the collision unless written notice of injury was provided to the insurer within 1 year after the collision or unless the insurer made a payment of personal protection insurance benefits for the injury. The requirements of notice are becoming more strict and a Court of Appeals panel recently ruled that a hospital’s medical records and bills for collision related treatment were inadequate notice under this law and that payments for No-Fault benefits were barred.
