Yes, a child injured in a Michigan auto accident is entitled to receive attendant care service payments. 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. Once it is established that a child requires attendant care, the insurer is obligated to pay for the attendant care services, whether they are provided by a nurse, family member, or friend. If a parent provides these services to a child, it must be established that the services provided that are not already legally required by a parent, have increased substantially than the parent is eligible to receive payment for the services provided to the injured child.
