Over $1,500,000 of No-Fault Benefits Collected for Permanently Disabled Wife and Mother
November 16, 2017
A police crash left a middle-aged wife and mother struggling in the hospital for ten days, only for her family to find that she is permanently disabled as the result of a traumatic brain injury. Once an independent woman, now she requires constant care from either a family member or a professional care attendant. Although her regular doctors initially asked for round-the-clock care, when the insurance company’s doctors subsequently examined her, they ignored all of her doctors’ instructions and reduced the recommendation to just two hours a day.
No one, not even the insurance company’s doctors, questioned the severity of her injuries; therefore, this woman’s attendant care costs should have been covered without debate. Instead, the insurance company refused to pay the reasonable amount requested. In addition to that, I was horrified to find that they had not even examined the medical records provided by her psychologist when making their decision. The case went to trial and I successfully obtained a verdict guaranteeing my client at least $1.5M in No-Fault benefits, including 16 hours a day of attendant care coverage and lifetime medical benefits. Now her family can focus on enjoying their time together instead of worrying about the accident-related expenses.
