Our Michigan attendant care claims lawyers settled a lawsuit against Geico Insurance Company related to a bicycle accident. Our client was riding her bicycle in Monroe, Michigan and was struck by a car. She suffered very serious injuries in the accident, including a closed head injury and serious orthopedic injuries. Due to her injuries, she required attendant care services for supervision, care, and assistance.
Attendant Care services commonly include, but are not limited to: preparing meals and feeding; assistance with personal hygiene, such as dressing and bathing; attending to wounds; assistance with medication; providing transportation to and from medical appointments; and supervision and monitoring, etc.
In order to submit a claim for attendant care you must provide the insurer with "reasonable proof of the fact and of the amount of loss sustained." This is usually done by submitting a claim, in the form of written documentation, to the insurer with: (1) the name of the injured claimant; (2) the name and address of the care provider; (3) the days and number of hours the care was provided; (4) the specific types of care provided; and (5) a note from a physician stating that the care is necessary, including the number of days/hours needed (See e.g. Attending Physicians Report).
Claims for attendant care services were submitted to Geico Insurance but the company refused to pay them, despite the recommendation of a treating physician. We filed a lawsuit against the insurance company to force payment of those benefits. The case proceeded to a mandatory Case Evaluation at the Monroe County Circuit Court. Both sides accepted the settlement recommendation of $35,000.00. We had previously obtained a significant settlement for our client against the negligent driver to compensate her for her pain and suffering injuries.
