Workers Disability Compensation Act (MCL 418.1, et seq.)
In a 2-1 decision which was issued a few weeks before the Supreme Court's opinion in Mathls v Interstate (item number 292), the Court of Appeals held that a plaintiff injured in an automobile accident in the course of his employment is entitled to receive no-fault personal insurance protection benefits from his employer's carrier even though workers' comp benefits are available. Judge Gillis filed a dissenting opinion consistent with his opinion in the Mathis and Ottenwess decisions.
