Our Michigan attendant care claims lawyers recently settled a case in the amount of $63,000 against AAA Insurance Company for underpaying an accident victim her benefits. Our client suffered very serious injuries in a car accident that required extensive medical care and a prolonged period of recovery. These injuries included numerous spinal fractures, a pelvic injury, and a closed head injury. She required twenty-four hour care due to these injuries.
AAA of Michigan paid attendant care benefits but failed to give our client a raise in fees over the years. We filed suit and took the deposition of the insurance adjuster, who admitted that a raise should have been given but was not. As such, the insurance company agreed to pay for the period dating back in which our client was underpaid. The case settled before trial.
