When a person has been injured in a car accident caused by the fault (i.e., negligence) of another motorist, the Michigan No-Fault Act lets the victim pursue a liability claim. This liability claim (also called a tort claim) permits the victim to recover compensation for two distinct types of damages: 1) Excess Economic Loss Damages and 2) Noneconomic Loss Damages
