LANSING, Mich. — People joined together to march in protest to changes made to Michigan's no-fault insurance laws.

Protesters stated the no-fault leaves accident victims without access to health care through their insurance and shifts cost from auto insurers to medicaid without lowering auto insurance premiums.

"If this is not fixed, then we're going to be very limited on what we can do for our patients in terms of ongoing therapy, ongoing support to see doctors,"

The rally started at the Lansing Center and marched towards the capitol building at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, and was in response to recent changes made to Michigan's no-fault insurance.

The rally was organized by and featured by groups representing doctors and health care providers in Michigan as well as no-fault auto insurance protection groups.

Pre-rally activities took place at 9 a.m.

Activities included emailing local lawmakers, making a rally sign, registering to vote and "sharing your story" at a video booth.
