Our brain injury attorneys recently settled a first party automobile insurance lawsuit against AAA Insurance Company. The lawsuit was filed for a retired military nurse who suffered serious injuries in a single car rollover accident in Michigan. Her injuries included a traumatic brain injury, a back injury, and injuries to her knees. She required knee replacement surgery.
The auto accident injuries restricted from returning to work and were so incapacitating that she required attendant care services. Attendant care services commonly include, but are not limited to: preparing meals and feeding; assistance with personal hygiene, such as dressing and bathing; attending to wounds; assistance with medication; providing transportation to and from medical appointments; and supervision and monitoring, etc.
AAA insurance had also refused to pay for household service expenses and medical mileage for transportation to and from medical appointments. We filed a lawsuit on her behalf to force payment of these unpaid benefits. In fact, this was the second time that we had to sue the insurance company for the same claim. After the first lawsuit, they settled the case and agreed to pay future benefits, only to stop paying them again. The lawsuit was filed in the Wayne County Circuit Court in Detroit, Michigan. The claim was settled prior to trial.
If you or a loved one suffer a traumatic brain injury in a Michigan car accident, and the insurance company denies your claim for no-fault benefits, including attendant care services, you need to speak to an experienced Michigan brain lawyer immediately. When the insurance company denies your no-fault claim, your only recourse is to file a lawsuit against the insurance company.
