Attendant Care Services Lawsuit Settled Against Insurance Company

Comments (0)
We recently settled a lawsuit for underpaid no-fault benefits claiming that an insurance company substantially underpaid the husband of an accident victim for attendant care services for several years after the accident. The wife suffered a closed head injury and a fractured hip in the accident and was cared for in her home by her husband. He provided twenty-four hour care as prescribed by the treating physician. The insurance company had been paying him an hourly rate of $8.00 per hour for those services.

Our Michigan no-fault insurance lawyers filed suit on behalf and claimed that the insurance company was paying a low hourly rate that was not appropriate for the level of care being provided to the accident victim. We forced the insurance to increase the rate to $14.00 per hour and compelled them to pay the husband the dollar differential dating back to the date of the accident. We also obtained attorney's fees from the insurance company.
