Into the Pit: Supreme Court Holds Vehicle Maintenance Mishap Triggers PIP

Motor Vehicle Litigation / February 9, 2024

The Michigan Supreme Court held that injuries sustained while walking over to examine an old oil filter at an oil change facility arose from the maintenance of a motor vehicle as a motor vehicle. Therefore, the No-Fault Act applied to the accident and injuries, including the entitlement to PIP benefits. Additionally, the Court clarified that MCL 500.3106(1) did not independently provide no-fault benefits, but rather excluded coverage for injuries involving parked motor vehicles unless exceptions applied.
