Entitlement to PIP Benefits: Arising Out of / Causation Requirement [§3105(1)]
In a short per curiam Opinion, the Court of Appeals affirmed a summary judgment denial of no-fault benefits to plaintiff who was shot by her estranged husband while she was operating an automobile. The Court held that, "Shotgun injuries have no causal connection with the use of an automobile, nor are they foreseeably identifiable with the normal use, maintenance, and ownership of a vehicle."
