Who Pays For No-Fault Property Protection Insurance (PPI) Benefits?
Attorney Commentary on No-Fault Statute: MCL 500.3125
Property protection insurance benefits; order of priority for payment of benefits
Just as there is an order of priority to recover Michigan No-Fault benefits when there is personal injury following an auto accident, there is also an order of priority for claiming property protection insurance or PPI benefits to cover “accidental property damage” after an accident involving a motor vehicle.
The order of priority for PPI claims is as follows:
- First Priority – An individual whose “tangible property” has been damaged as a result of a motor vehicle accident should first pursue PPI benefits with the No-Fault auto “insurers” of the owners or registrants of the “vehicles involved in the accident.”
- Second Priority – If No-Fault insurance is not available through the owners or registrants, then the individual whose property was damaged should look to the auto insurance companies of the drivers of the “vehicles involved in the accident.”
