Anyone filed a "mini-tort" claim in MI?

Thanks.

And lo, he compromised with Atgmott, and verily she conceived,
and did bear a son, Notgatt. And Notgatt roamed naked,
and did bequeath his skin to the roads. And he was a wild ass and an outcast,
and was hated through all the land. And his forehead was branded, and he did be
come a sign and a warning to all the people."

So, this is in relation to an auto accident?

From: http://www.expertlaw.com/forums/showthread.php?t=10536

"The mini-tort law lets you recover up to $500 from the at-fault driver for damage to your vehicle that is not covered by insurance - essentially, to cover your deductible if you have collision coverage."

If you are trying to recover already spent money:
"Try requesting the amount directly from the at-fault driver's insurance company. If they won't pay, you will likely have to resolve the claim through small claims court."

As previously stated, you would then have to take up the matter in Small Claims Court.

Here is a good site that answers the question and includes a link to the MI governmental unit that can offer you more guidance.

In the past I've just called the other guys insurance and said I'm filing a mini-tort claim.

Thanks for the links, Webb. Yes it was an auto accident. Nothing serious.


"In the past I've just called the other guys insurance and said I'm filing a mini-tort claim."


Headlight, Then what happened? Did they just pay, or what? I really don't want to eff around with small claims court. If they don't either I'm hoping they'll just send me a check.

Both the other guy and I have Progressive, he has collision I just have PL PD. It was 100% his fault.
