New Threshold Bill HB 5864 - Analysis
On September 11, 2012, HB 5864 was introduced by Representatives Lyons and Haveman. The bill amends the 3rd party tort provisions of Section 3135 of the Michigan No-Fault Act. Specifically, this bill changes the current legislative definition of the tort threshold requirement of "serious impairment of body function," which is the injury threshold that must be met before an auto accident survivor can sue the at-fault driver for non-economic loss damages (also known as pain and suffering damages).The bill could eliminate almost all third-party tort claims against at-fault drivers.

Tell the Whole Story About No-Fault Reform
The recent Detroit News article "Michigan Rolling Towards No-Fault Reform" (published Aug. 2) cannot be left unanswered. The article was published in the Think section of the Detroit News and written to look like a real news article, yet it really only presented one side of Michigan's auto no-fault story. The author uses misleading data provided by a single source and fails to consider the impact of what the potential cuts to no-fault benefits will have on health care providers and state taxpayers. Above all, the article was insulting to Michigan families that have suffered through a severe auto accident and cannot go unanswered.
