The third statement that continues to show the lack of knowledge from the people behind this advertisement is the one line that reads, We are for everyone who legitimately need assistance from this fund! (not the lowlifes who take advantage). Once you look past the unnecessary use of slanderous rhetoric, this statement contradicts their text box on the right side of the page that says, Place a $500,000 cap on current and future claimants. The reality is that anyone who sustains a catastrophic injury (such as a traumatic brain injury or a spinal cord injury), $500,000 will not even come close to covering the appropriate levels of care and rehabilitation they will require throughout their lifetime.
It is my sincere hope that whoever is responsible for this advertisement truly takes the time to learn the facts of Michigan's Auto No-Fault Insurance and the Michigan Catastrophic Claims Associations. All Michigan residents are fortunate to live in a state that allows all accident victims the chance to have a good quality of life post injury. In other states, the sad reality is that if you get injured in an auto accident, financial ruin for you and your family occurs, followed up by the remainder of your life is spent in a state-run nursing home.
If the "Ask Detroit" radio show and the staff at 680AM WNZK really want to delve into this topic, the focus should be on the MCCA and their refusal to present the real financial data that is needed to truly understand the status of that fund. Or, they can focus on why the State of Michigan allows your credit score, occupation, level of education, and residential address to factor into to how much your pay in auto insurance premiums. Better yet, I urge the hosts of "Ask Detroit" to spend some time learning the truth about Michigan Auto No-Fault Insurance, and witness firsthand some of the therapies and rehabilitation that are quintessential to the recovery and well being of auto accident victims.
If the hosts of "Ask Detroit" or any other media member would like to learn more about Auto No-Fault, please do not hesitate to contact me at email@example.com. It is my goal to help everyone understand just how critical Michigan's Auto No-Fault System is to not only those who currently need it, but to anyone who might need it in the future.
In a split second an auto accident can change someone's life forever, it could be yours. What type of auto insurance coverage would you want?
