Yes, a Michigan resident injured in car accident in Canada may be able to receive no-fault insurance benefits. 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.
This is a tremendous benefit to residents in the state. However, to preserve these rights one must ensure they follow the correct process of filing a claim, and file the claim within the strict statute of limitations.
