COA holds truck engaged in towing objects is being used as a “motor vehicle” within meaning of Michigan No-Fault Act

In Walega v. Walega, No. 321721, the Michigan Court of Appeals considered whether an individual injured while towing a safe behind his truck by connecting a rope to the truck’s trailer hitch is entitled to no-fault benefits.  The Court held that because the truck was being used to transport an item, and this use was consistent with the vehicle’s inherent purpose, the injured man was entitled to no-fault personal injury protection (“PIP”) benefits.
