Our Michigan brain injury lawyers recently filed a lawsuit against Great American Insurance Company for a client who suffered a traumatic brain injury in a 1997 Michigan car accident. The client has been disabled due to the injuries and has been under the care of medical specialists since the accident. Due to his injuries, he has required 24 hour attendant care services which have been provided by his family members.
Family members are entitled to be paid for attendant care services provided to an auto accident injury victim after a Michigan car accident. Many family members do not know they are entitled to be paid for these services and quite often the insurance adjusters do not tell them that they can submit attendant care service claims. The fact is that a family member can both provide and be paid for these services.
The lawsuit was filed because the insurance company has refused to pay attendant care claim benefits without a reasonable basis. The family is providing 24 hour supervision, assistance with dispensing medications, and other necessary services. The suit also seeks payment of attorney’s fees and costs for the illegal denial of benefits. No trial date has been set by the judge in the Oakland County Circuit Court.
Our brain injury lawyers frequently file lawsuits to compel the insurance company to pay the higher, more appropriate attendant care rate to the family member, and we are able to recover large settlements for the underpayments in the past. If the auto insurance company has failed to pay a family member providing attendant care services or underpaid a family member at a low hourly rate, you should contact our award winning attorneys today. We will force the insurance company to pay the proper rate and obtain all past due and underpaid benefits for the services provided in the past. There are strict time deadlines for filing Michigan No-Fault insurance claims so it is important that you contact us immediately. Call now at (800) 606-1717.
