Our Michigan auto accident attorneys filed a lawsuit against Geico Insurance for Michigan no-fault insurance benefits. The case arises out of a single car accident involving a seventeen year old auto accident victim. He was a rear seat passenger in a car that struck a pole. He suffered serious injuries in the auto accident, including a traumatic brain injury, TMJ, and both neck and eye injuries. He submitted a claim to Geico Insurance for payment of both attendant care services and replacement service benefits, but those have not been properly paid.
Under Michigan law, you are entitled to Michigan no-fault insurance benefits if injured in a car accident, regardless of who is at fault. Two of these benefits include attendant care and replacement 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. Replacement services commonly include, but are not limited to household chores and assistance performed by a family member or another individual, laundry, housecleaning, mowing the lawn, and taking out the garbage. Typically, your own insurance company is responsible for payment of these benefits.
The lawsuit was filed in the Wayne County Circuit Court in Detroit, Michigan. The suit seeks payment of all overdue and underpaid attendant care benefits and replacement service benefits that Geico Insurance has failed to pay. The suit also seeks attorney’s fees and interest. No trial date has been set by the court.
If your auto insurance company refuses to pay your no fault insurance benefits, your only recourse is to file a lawsuit against your insurance company. If you choose to begin a lawsuit against your insurance company for No-Fault benefits, you must file a lawsuit within one year of the date on which the last unpaid No-Fault benefit was incurred.
