MCL 500.3105(1) Interpretation

The Supreme Court of Michigan has interpreted the phrase "arising out of the use of a motor vehicle" in the context of a claim for no-fault benefits under MCL 500.3105(1); MSA 24.13105(1). In McKenzie v. Auto Club Ins Ass'n, 458 Mich 214; 580 NW2d 424 (1998), the Court held that "the clear meaning of 3105 is that the Legislature intended coverage of injuries resulting from the use of motor vehicles when closely related to their transportational function and only when engaged in that function." Id. at 220; see Morosini v. Citizens Ins Co of America (After Remand), 461 Mich 303, 309-310; 602 NW2d 828 (1999).
