Car Crash Victims to Hold Rally in Southfield, Michigan

October 18, 2011

A group of car accident victims plans to rally about auto insurance legislation being considered in Lansing.

The crash victims are to gather Monday in Southfield.

They’re upset about a bill that passed the Republican-led House Insurance Committee last week. It would change Michigan’s auto insurance coverage requirements for people injured in accidents.

Michigan is the only state in the nation that mandates uncapped medical benefit coverage for people seriously injured in vehicle accidents. The new proposal would offer motorists less expensive insurance in exchange for limited personal injury protection coverage.

The proposal would offer a range of coverage options. Supporters say motorists should have options for coverage.

Opponents say motorists opting for less coverage could wind up underinsured and in financial trouble if they’re seriously hurt in an accident.
