Written Notice of Auto Accident Required by Michigan No-Fault Law
Lawyer Commentary on No-Fault Statute: MCL 500.3141
Written notice of accident
In order to receive benefits from a No-Fault insurer, the person injured in a car accident in Michigan (or his or her representative) may be required to submit a “written notice” of the accident to his or her auto insurance company.
In the event an auto insurance company imposes this requirement, then the person injured in the accident must provide the “written notice” “as soon as practicable” after the accident occurs.
Importantly, if a person who has been injured in a car accident fails to provide his insurance company with the required “written notice,” then the accident victim’s claim for No-Fault PIP benefits may be denied.
