KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Groups who oppose changes to the state’s no-fault insurance law held a forum at the Kalamazoo Public Library Monday evening. They say that it appears there may not be enough votes in the Michigan House to approve the changes being sought by insurance companies, changes they say would be a death sentence for anyone who is unlucky enough to have a catastrophic auto accident.
Margaret Kroese with the Hope Network says the auto insurance companies want to give motorists a broader range of choices, many that would not provide sufficient coverage, and might leave drivers subject to lawsuits if the damage they cause exceeds their coverage. It certainly wouldn’t cover their medical bills if they needed lifetime care because they were left paralyzed or debilitated.
Brian Culver, who was left a quadriplegic 17-years ago says he has been visiting legislative offices and telling them first hand what changes in the no-fault law would mean for victims like him.
They say voters have rejected similar changes twice, and lawmakers should follow that direction and leave the law alone. Watch above.
