Our no-fault insurance lawyers recently settled a lawsuit with State Farm Insurance Company for unpaid benefits. Our client suffered serious injuries to her back when she fell while getting out from her daughter’s truck in a shopping center parking lot in Fenton, Michigan. She submitted a claim to her no-fault insurance company, State Farm Insurance, for medical expenses, attendant care services, household services, and lost wages. The insurance company failed to timely pay those benefits.
State Farm Insurance is obligated to pay No-Fault Insurance benefits to any insured who suffers injuries related to a motor vehicle accident. Benefits include full payment of medical expenses, wage loss, household services, attendant care services, medical mileage, transportation expenses, home modifications, and other great benefits. Quite often the insurance company unlawfully fails to pay all benefits or terminates the the payment of benefits. In other occasions, they simply underpay the benefits that are owed. When this happens, the injured person has the right to file a lawsuit against the insurance company for payment of these No-Fault Insurance expenses. If it is determined that the benefits were not timely paid or improperly denied, the accident victim can also receive payment of interest and attorney’s fees.
We filed suit against State Farm Insurance seeking damages for the unpaid claims. We reached a settlement in the amount of $35,000 with the insurance carrier, which was payment of all outstanding claims. The case was settled prior to trial.
