Attendant Care Services
Depending on the severity of injuries from an automobile accident, car accident victims may be prescribed attendant care services by their treating providers. Under Michigan law, auto-insurers must pay for reasonable attendant care services as they are being performed. Attendant care services commonly are provided alongside replacement services.
Attendant care services vary depending on the disabilities and injuries at hand, but oftentimes consist of assistance with some of the following daily activities:
- getting dressed
- distributing medications
- caring for wounds
- preventing falls
Attendant care can be provided by a family member, friend, or even through a third-party nursing company. The amount of attendant care depends on the severity of injuries. For those who have experienced catastrophic injuries, attendant care may be recommended by the treating physician for up to 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
