Payees of personal protection benefits; payments as a discharge of liability
This no-fault statute defines when an insurance company’s payment of no-fault benefits will allow the insurer to avoid future liability. Under this statute, an insurance company that pays Michigan no-fault insurance benefits to someone injured in an auto accident is relieved of future liability unless having been made aware in writing of someone else having or possibly having a valid claim under Michigan law.
If there is confusion as to who should receive no-fault benefits, the following can file a lawsuit and request an order from a court to determine who is entitled to no-fault benefits and which insurance company is responsible for payment:
The person injured in the automobile accident who is claiming no-fault insurance benefits;
The insurance company;
Any dependents of a person who has been killed or suffered wrongful death in an accident; or
Any person who is involved in an auto accident.
