Yes, you may be able to get twenty-four (24) hour a day attendant care services after a Michigan car accident. However, not every auto accident victim is entitled to receive 24 hour services and is dependent on a case to case basis. To receive attendant care benefits a physician must write a script for these services. It is also the physician who determines the number of hours each day that attendant care services are necessary to a victim.
The determination as to the type of service needed and the number of hours is dependent on the type of injury suffered in the car accident. In cases involving spinal cord injuries and closed head injuries, it is often necessary to have supervision for twenty-four hours a day for the lifetime of the accident victim. Other times, such as when a person suffers severe orthopedic injuries, the need for 24 hour attendant care services may be temporary until the person recovers from the accident related-injuries.
