The Oakland Press talks with Attorney Todd Berg on the false promises of auto insurance savings in recent no-fault reform proposals
Todd Berg, an attorney at Michigan Auto Law, was interviewed by Andrew Kidd of The Oakland Press on recent no-fault insurance “reform” measures, and how they would affect Michigan drivers.
Todd told The Oakland Press that No Fault medical benefits would be capped, leaving accident victims lacking critical medical care. And this is being proposed by the auto insurance industry under the guise that caps on no-fault benefits will save drivers money on their insurance premiums.
“Never once in these bills where they’re cutting no-fault do they guarantee savings to the consumer,” he said. “There’s not one word.”
Berg said a more in-depth analysis of the proposed bills should be in order before the citizens voice their concerns to their legislators.
“When people really look at this and say, ‘What’s in it for me?’ and when they realize that there’s nothing and their pockets are empty, I don’t think people are going to support this,” he said. “Even assuming there was, the savings compared to what the costs are if tragedy strikes and somebody finds him/herself in a catastrophic crash.”
