Michigan Auto Law in Crain’s: Insurance companies can’t mask No-Fault benefits

Steve Gursten opines on car accident case where child with traumatic brain injury was deliberately denied the attendant care benefits she was entitled to by her auto insurance company

Johnson v. Wausau Insurance Co. is a Michigan Court of Appeals case regarding an auto insurance company adjuster who lied to save money from paying attendant care insurance benefits to the caregivers of a 10-month-old girl with a severe traumatic brain injury from a car accident — and got away with it.

Crain’s Detroit Business covers traumatic brain injury lawyer Steve Gursten’s blog and editorial material about the attendant care case, tackling the issue of whether an insurance company can misrepresent the No-Fault benefits it owes to a customer, so long as the customer can get the truth elsewhere. Gursten says it’s one of the most horrible cases he’s ever read as a lawyer, and it creates detrimental public policy for Michigan drivers and their families.

Here’s the Crain’s Detroit Business editorial: Can an auto insurance provider mask No-Fault (attendant care) benefits in Michigan?
