Our attendant care claims lawyer recently settled a lawsuit against Auto-Owners Insurance Company for unpaid and underpaid Michigan No-Fault Insurance Benefits. Our injured client suffered serious injuries in an auto accident, which included a herniated disc at L5-S1. Doctors attempted to relieve his back pain with epidural injections, but these did not provide adequate relief and he eventually had spinal surgery. He also suffered an injury to his wrist that required surgery for a carpal tunnel release and injuries to his knee. After the accident, he required both attendant care services and household services to be performed on his behalf.
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. Once it is established that a person requires and is provided attendant care, the insurer is obligated to pay for the attendant care.
We filed a lawsuit in the Wayne County Circuit Court in Detroit, Michigan against Auto Owners Insurance for unpaid and underpaid benefits. After taking depositions, we settled the case for $100,000.00. In addition to that settlement, our attorneys also settled his personal injury claim against the negligent driver and an uninsured motorists claim. In all, we were able to obtain more than $600,000 for the client.
