Yes, a Michigan resident injured in an Ohio auto accident may be able to receive no-fault insurance benefits. This is a tremendous benefit for the out-of-state resident because the No-Fault Statute provides benefits that pay for wages lost from work, medical expenses, and household chores. Best of all, there is no limit to the amount of medical expenses paid and these benefits last for your lifetime.
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.
