Yes, a Michigan resident injured in an out of state car accident may be able to receive no-fault insurance benefits. For the out-of-state residents this is a great advantage because the No-Fault Statute provides benefits that pay for wages lost from work, medical expenses, and household chores.
To make a no-fault insurance claim, the Michigan resident must either have his or her own auto insurance policy or reside with a family member who has a Michigan policy. This type of claim can be made even though the striking vehicle was not insured in Michigan. To preserve your rights, you must file an Application for No-Fault Benefits within one year of the date of the accident.
