Michigan Mini Tort Auto Law
Our car accident lawyers tell you how to get your vehicle damage paid for following a car crash under Michigan mini tort auto law
Our car accident lawyers frequently receive questions from car accident and truck accident victims about their vehicle damage.
Under Michigan mini tort auto law, victims of auto accidents can only recover a maximum of $1,000 for vehicle damage from the driver who caused the crash. However, for car accidents that occur after July 1, 2020, the maximum recovery amount will increase from $1,000 to $3,000. This is called a mini tort claim.
The state of Michigan does not require a driver to have collision coverage. If you do not have collision coverage on your vehicle, you can recoup some of your out-of-pocket costs for vehicle repairs via the law. The law also applies if your coverage is limited or you have a collision deductible — and you are less than 50 percent at-fault for the accident.
The law only covers vehicle damage. If you were injured in an auto accident, please visit our No-Fault lawyers resource center to read more about what benefits you’re entitled to from your first- and third-party cases.

The purpose of this law is to have you not to pay for all of your vehicle damage, but to compensate a person involved in a car accident that is not her fault for out-of-pocket expenses incurred from the collision. Listen to this podcast to learn about how to get some of the cost of your car damage reimbursed under the law.
