Citizens Insurance Company of America is the insurance carrier responsible for paying no-fault insurance benefits for accident related injuries. The insurance company has refused to pay and underpaid many benefits required under Michigan law. Specifically, Citizens Insurance has failed to pay for vehicle modifications to accommodate her special travel needs. The insurance company is also refusing to pay for 24 your family provided attendant care services, despite the medical need for those services.
The lawsuit was filed in the Wayne County Circuit Court and seeks payment for the unpaid Michigan no-fault insurance benefits. It also seeks attorney’s fees and statutory interest provided by the Michigan No-Fault Insurance Act. No trial date has been set by the court.
