Motorcycle Lawyer Files Attendant Care Lawsuit For Injured Biker

0 Comment

Our Michigan motorcycle accident lawyers recently filed a first party Michigan No-Fault Insurance lawsuit for an injured biker.  The thirty-eight year old woman was the victim of an automobile versus motorcycle accident in 2006.  She underwent surgery to repair neck and hip injuries.  As a result of her injuries, she was provided attendant care services from a family member during her period of recovery.

Among the package of no-fault benefits provided under Michigan law, the insurance company is required to pay for attendant care service benefits after motorcycle accident if another motor vehicle is involved.  This essentially means any services rendered to an injured motorcyclist that are similar to what a home aide would provide (i.e. cooking, changing bandages, assisting with bathing, assisting with grooming, etc.).

The dollar amount paid for these services depends on the level of care and supervision being provided. Ranges are typically from $12.00 per hour to $25.00 per hour. Higher rates are paid in cases involving brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and other serious injuries that require the most assistance.

AAA Insurance Company has failed or refused to pay attendant care benefits.  They have refused to pay for reasonable and necessary medical expenses as required under Michigan law.  The lawsuit seeks payment of unpaid attendant care benefits.  The lawsuit also seeks attorney’s fees, costs, and penalty interest for the wrongful denial by the insurance company of these insurance claims.  The lawsuit was filed in Wayne County, Michigan.  No trial date has been set by the court.
