What if I am partly at fault in an auto accident?

Car insurance policies in Michigan operate on a no-fault coverage. Because of this, most collisions are covered by an individual's insurance policy; however, you may still be liable for a lawsuit, depending on the situation.

Michigan law takes into account the amount of negligence each party contributes to an auto accident. For any incident where one party contributes a majority of the negligence responsible for a collision (51% or more), they may be held liable for damages associated with the incident. If both drivers are equally responsible, no one is considered liable.
