Livonia Woman Receives Settlement in No-Fault Benefits Case

Case Type: Livonia Attendant Care Benefits Settlement

Settlement: $31,000

Plaintiff: Gloria Douglas
Defendant: Auto Club Insurance Association
Case Number: 15-012205-NF
Judge: John H. Gillis, Jr.
Location: Wayne County Circuit Court
Date of Settlement: Feb. 27, 2017

Facts of the Case

Our client was involved in a motor vehicle accident on July 4, 1986. As a result of the accident, she sustained a significant back injury and required attendant care which was most recently being provided by her son and being paid for by our client’s motor vehicle insurance as part of her claim for Michigan No Fault benefits. In January 2014, the insurance company quit paying attendant care after having our client evaluated by a medical examiner of its choosing.

Types of Injuries and Harm Suffered

  • Degenerative changes at L4-5, L5-S1 requiring surgery.

Other Types of Damages

  • Attendant care.

Legal Issues in the Case

  • Was our client still in need of attendant care subsequent to January 2014?
  • Was a continued need for attendant care due to injuries sustained in the accident in 1986?
  • What is the appropriate number of hours of attendant care needed due to the accident in 1986?
  • How much compensation should be paid in a settlement?

What We Did To Win The Settlement

Our Michigan No Fault lawyers filed a lawsuit in the Wayne County Circuit Court. Depositions were taken of our client and her attendant care provider. The deposition was also taken of our client’s physicians to better understand the need for continued attendant care as it relates to the accident in 1986.

We attended facilitation and negotiated a settlement of $31,000.00 for our client. The settlement included compensation of all attendant care claimed in this lawsuit.
