If there is confusion as to who should receive No-Fault benefits, the following can file a lawsuit and request an order from a court to determine who is entitled to No-Fault benefits and which insurance company is responsible for payment:
- The person injured in the automobile accident who is claiming No-Fault insurance benefits.
