WHAT IF THE OTHER DRIVER IS FROM OUT OF STATE OR UNINSURED?- GRAND RAPIDS AUTO ACCIDENT ATTORNEY
Anyone who drives in Michigan, or who allows his or her car to be driven in Michigan, becomes subject to the insurance laws of this state. As a result, non-resident drivers have the same obligations and enjoy the same protection as a Michigan motorist. Similarly, any insurance company which sells insurance in Michigan must provide Michigan insurance benefits even if their contract with a non-resident motorist would not normally require it.
Uninsured motorists, on the other hand enjoy few of the protections of the law. An uninsured motorist who negligently causes injuries is responsible for all medical expenses, all property damages and any vehicle damage. Usually, such people cannot pay for the damage they cause, though, which is why you should purchase uninsured motorist protection for your family.
