No-Fault Reform: What Our Contributors Are Saying

By Rachael M. Sedlacek posted 06-25-2019 10:25


It finally happened. Effective June 11, 2019, the legislature amended the No-Fault Act, MCL 500.3101 et seq., via 2019 PAs 21 and 22. Here at ICLE, we’re bustling to create new and updated resources to help you navigate these changes. In the meantime, it may be helpful to read what some of our contributors have had to say so far about the amended act:

  • No-Fault Reform, Reformed. Contributor Dave Pierangeli’s firm, McDonald Pierangeli Macfarlane, posted this interesting commentary discussing some issues with PA 21 that the legislature attempted to fix with PA 22. 

My colleague John Swift and I are working with Steve Sinas and Matthew LaBeau to record an on-demand seminar in August tackling first impressions of how no-fault practice will change. In addition, a variety of speakers will offer advice on the amendments at the 2020 No-Fault Summit, which my colleague Jenni Colagiovanni has begun to plan. And thankfully, we were already scheduled to revise Michigan No-Fault Automobile Cases with Bob Logeman in the next year. With the massive No-Fault Act overhaul and significant changes to the discovery rules going into effect in January of 2020, we certainly have our work cut out for us!

Please tell us what you want to know about the changing no-fault landscape. It will help us tailor these resources for you. Also, if you have a blog post on the new No-Fault Act, please consider linking to it in the comments.
