We recently settled a lawsuit for underpaid no-fault benefits claiming that an insurance company substantially underpaid the husband of an accident victim for attendant care services for several years after the accident. The wife suffered a closed head injury and a fractured hip in the accident and was cared for in her home by her husband. He provided twenty-four hour care as prescribed by the treating physician. The insurance company had been paying him an hourly rate of $8.00 per hour for those services.
Our Michigan no-fault insurance lawyers filed suit on behalf and claimed that the insurance company was paying a low hourly rate that was not appropriate for the level of care being provided to the accident victim. We forced the insurance to increase the rate to $14.00 per hour and compelled them to pay the husband the dollar differential dating back to the date of the accident. We also obtained attorney's fees from the insurance company.
For more information about your rights after a Michigan car accident, you should request our book "The Ultimate Michigan Car Accident Handbook," written by Lawrence J. Buckfire. It has been called "the best book ever written for consumers on their rights after a Michigan car accident." The book sells for $14.95 on Amazon but we will send it to you for FREE.
