Attendant Care Lawsuit Filed For Traumatic Brain Injury Victim - Citizens Insurance

Comments (0)
Our Michigan no-fault insurance lawyers filed a lawsuit against Citizens Insurance Company seeking payment of attendant care services.  The suit alleges that our client requires attendant care services due to a traumatic brain injury that he suffered in a 1997 car accident.  The insurance company is paying a family member $10.00 per hour for these services, but this is not a reasonable rate based upon her duties and other rates for services in the area.  The suit seeks to recover the fair attendant care rates that should have been paid in the past and for the higher rates in the future.  

Traumatic brain injury patients often required attendant care services during their recovery after the accident.  These services are necessary for supervision, monitoring, bathing, toileting, dispensing medications, and other needs.  Many brain injury victims required attendant care services for their lifetime.  The no-fault insurance company is obligated to pay these benefits and pay a reasonable rate for the services, even if it is to a family member.
