Bodily Injury and the New Michigan Auto Insurance Reform Law

Bodily Injury (BI) liability covers injuries or damage you cause to other people if you’re in an accident and found to be at-fault.

Today, if you’re at-fault for an auto accident and someone else gets injured, they can make BI claims against you for non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering or excess work loss. As of July 2, 2020, in Michigan, they will also be able to make BI claims for Personal Injury Protection Allowable Expenses (PIP AE) against you if those expenses are higher than their own PIP AE limit.
