Michigan Auto Insurance Changes Take Effect Today

Michigan’s auto insurance laws change significantly today.

For many years, the state has mandated that motorists carry full, lifetime medical coverage for injuries that occur in crashes. That has provided great benefits for those who were hurt, but it also pushed our auto insurance premiums to the highest in the nation.

Beginning today, Jeff Bugni from the Frank A. Douglass Agency says you can elect to scale that coverage back…
