Lawyer Marc Mendelson has worked at the Mike Morse Law Firm for 17 years. In this episode, Marc joins Mike to explain Michigan’s new No-Fault law that goes into effect in July 2020. They go over who the new law really benefits and why consumers are unlikely to receive the savings they were promised. Marc also points out that Motorcyclists will now be forced to play a game of chance with their benefits. Having seen how quickly medical bills can burn through insurance money, Mike passionately encourages Michiganders to keep their unlimited coverage.
