Will my insurance company pay for my housekeeping expenses? by Patricia Santucci
Maybe. There is a housekeeping and home maintenance benefit, however in order to qualify for it, you must have sustained a catastrophic impairment that resulted in a substantial inability to perform the housekeeping and home maintenance that you normally performed prior to the motor vehicle collision. Or, when you bought your car insurance, you may have purchased the additional housekeeping and home maintenance benefit from your insurance company, which pays the benefit for up to 104 weeks even if your injury is not catastrophic but results in a substantial inability to perform housekeeping and home maintenance that you normally performed prior to the motor vehicle collision. If you do qualify, the amount payable for this benefit will be up to $100 per week for the first 104 weeks. If you have sustained a “catastrophic impairment”, then this benefit may be payable for a longer period of time. Schedule a free consultation with Santucci Personal Injury Law to help you navigate through this sometimes cumbersome process. (60)
