Paraplegic loses case over rare stem cell surgery after a motorcycle crash

“No-Fault specialist” Steve Gursten is interview by the Associated Press on Michigan Supreme Court insurance case

After a motorcycle accident turned Kevin Krohn into a paraplegic, he received stem cell surgery in Europe as part of his treatment. Krohn’s No-Fault insurance company disputed the medical bills for the stem cell treatment and filed a lawsuit.

The Michigan Supreme Court ruled that his insurance company ultimately did not have to cover those costs – because it was not “reasonably necessary” under Michigan law.

The Associated Press interviewed No-Fault insurance attorney Steven Gursten on this controversial case.

Here’s an excerpt from the story:

Attorney Steve Gursten, a specialist in No-Fault auto law, said the “troubling” decision has created a buzz among lawyers. He predicts it will be used by insurance companies to prevent more people from getting cutting-edge treatments for brain and spinal injuries.

“When I go to national conferences, brain-injury experts are so excited about advances in the next 10 years,” Gursten said.
