Michigan’s auto insurance premiums have been the highest in America for the last six years – in large part because our state’s unique combination of no-fault regulation and unlimited personal-injury benefits has caused medical costs from auto accidents to surge out of control. However, in May, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and the Michigan Legislature agreed on a significant reform package that should provide Michigan motorists with significant relief as soon as next summer.
