Under the Michigan no-fault laws, an injury victim in a motor vehicle accident is entitled to receive attendant care benefits. These can be provided by a staffing agency, a family member, or some other person. Many times, the insurance company agrees to pay for the services but underpays the number of hours or the hourly amount to the service provider. This often leads to the filing of a no-fault insurance lawsuit for attendant care benefits.
We recently added a Library Article to our website, "What Are The Rates For Attendant Care Services in Michigan." The article discusses the Michigan law on determining the rates for these services. It also discusses the rights of accident victims who are being underpaid for their attendant care service benefits. It is essential that anyone who is being denied or underpaid these benefits contact a lawyer as soon as possible so that important deadlines for filing claims are not missed.
