No-fault auto insurance law for ‘Rally for Vlady’ pushes

Dozens of people continue to push for the spirit of the Detroit Plaza on Thursday with the 2019 law overhauling Michigan’s no-fault auto insurance policies.

A “Rally for Vlady: 18,000 Auto No-Fault Survivors for Lighting the Lamp” comes as families of crash victims make a Michigan Court of Appeals decision that could stop reform’s more controversial provisions.

Former Detroit Red Wing player Vladimir “Vlady” Konstantinov, who required constant care after a law enforcement action, has been unfairly and retroactively applied to survivors of the accident. Less than a week after winning the Stanley Cup in June 1997. Konstantinov appeared at the event.

He and at least 18,000 others have suffered reduced services because of the reform limitation of time-related reimbursement for care and a cut-off fee for medical providers.

“These survivors are essentially robbed,” said Thomas Constand, president and CEO of the Nonprofit Brain Injury Association of Michigan, the crowd. “They deserve what they’ve already paid. And it’s time for the government to protect the rights of its citizens, not diminish them.”
