Insurance FAQ

“Negligence is the failure to behave with the level of care that a reasonable person would have exercised under the same circumstances. Either a person’s actions or omissions of actions can be found negligent. The omission of actions is considered negligent only when the person had a duty to act (e.g., a duty to help someone because of one’s own previous conduct).” Source: Cornell Law School Legal Information Institute

“To drive legally in Michigan, state law requires you to purchase no-fault automobile insurance. The financial security that results from being insured is one of the most important reasons to purchase insurance. In a serious accident, injuries can amount to hundreds of thousands of dollars in costs to you or your family.” Source: Michigan Department of Insurance and Financial Services


Under the Michigan No-Fault Act, a person can make a first party claim against one’s insurer for economic loss, such as medical expenses, attendant care, work loss, and household replacement services. An individual can also pursue a third party claim against a negligent driver for pain and suffering and excess economic loss, and an underinsured or uninsured motorist claim against an insurer should the negligent driver fail to carry insurer or inadequate insurance coverage. We have been routinely called upon to defend said claims, in particular those claims which may concern misrepresentation and fraudulent claims.

“Property owners aren’t responsible in every circumstance in which someone gets hurt on their land or in their home or building, however premises liability law dictates the circumstances under which they can be held legally liable if things go wrong.

Premises liability law establishes the obligations property owners have to others, as well as the types of compensation accident victims can receive. If you get hurt on someone’s property and want to pursue a legal claim for damages, premises liability law will govern your case.” Source: Forbes Advisor “What is Premises Liability?
