I recently read about a woman paralyzed from spinal cord injuries she received in a car accident. Although she has spent the last seven years since the accident unable to walk, she recently underwent experimental surgery in Portugal and has begun a new rehabilitation regiment featuring increased weight bearing exercises. After a lot of training and failures, the Detroit Free Press reports she has begun feeling sensation in her lower limbs for the first time since the accident. Although it is clear that these results are not typical, the story provides hope and an example for the thousands of people who suffer from spinal cord injuries each year.
The article also discusses some aspects of how the Michigan No Fault Act provides support for rehab efforts by covering the cost of all medical expenses, even those far removed from the initial treatment or hospital stay. From the article:
"Another obstacle is health insurance. Most plans typically don't cover intense therapy programs. But a person injured in an auto accident, such as Nader, in a no-fault state like Michigan, can get coverage funded through a state system.
Even then, a person's coverage may be dropped if an insurer decides progress hasn't been made and documented."
Selecting an experienced Michigan car accident attorney to handle your No Fault claims and your auto negligence claims can help you get full coverage for rehab programs so you can resume your normal life.
