Property Damage After A Car Accident
How Michigan No-Fault insurance covers property damage
No-Fault insurance is required by law in Michigan for people to drive. The basic No-Fault insurance policy you must purchase has three parts. One of those parts is property protection.
With property protection, your No-Fault insurance will pay up to $1 million for damage your vehicle causes in Michigan to other people’s property, such as buildings and fences. It will also pay for damages to another person’s properly parked vehicle.
Property damage protection does not pay for any other damage to cars. For help with your car damage, take a look at our mini tort section. If you have questions about No-Fault and your car accident, take a look at our FAQs: How does Michigan No-Fault apply to my car accident?
Property damage in another state: How does a Michigan driver pay?
As for property damage that occurs in another state, the residual liability insurance (bodily injury and property damage) you purchase will cover that. In other words, your required minimum coverage No-Fault policy will pay up to certain amounts if you are found legally responsible. That includes a required minimum of $10,000 for property damage in another state. Keep in mind, the $10,000 is just the minimum required by Michigan No-Fault. You can purchase higher policy limits. Our attorneys recommend you have at least $100,000 in out-of-state Property Damage coverage.
