University of Michigan Regents v. Titan Insurance Company
Michigan Supreme Court opinion stops one-year-back rule from limiting a recovery of overdue No-Fault benefits for minors hurt in car accidents
The one-year-back rule, which limits a car accident victims’ recovery of overdue No-Fault benefits, does not apply to minors and children who have been seriously injured in Michigan car accidents, according to the Michigan Supreme Court in its 2010 ruling in U of M Regents v. Titan, which overruled Cameron v. Auto Club Insurance Association.
NOTE: In 2012, the U of M Regents vs. Titan decision was overruled by Joseph v. Auto Club Insurance Association which also reinstated the court’s 2006 decision in Cameron v. Auto Club Insurance Association.
