No-Fault Penalty for Car Accident Victim’s Refusal to Take Exam
Lawyer Commentary on No-Fault Statute: MCL 500.3153
Refusal to submit to mental or physical examination or to make available reports of examinations
If a person injured in a car accident later refuses to undergo a mental or physical examination requested by his own No-Fault insurance company, or refuses to provide a medical report regarding his medical treatment from a car accident, the trial court can:
- Decide on the exact state of a person’s injury.
- Prohibit a person from introducing evidence, a claim or a defense.
- Enter a judgment against a person, such as dismissing the lawsuit.
- Charge attorneys fees against a person or order delivery of a report or exclude reports and testimony at trial.
