Conservator's expenses must be paid by PIP auto carrier after head injury

Edward Carroll suffered a devastating head injury more than 20 years ago.  A conservator, Alan May, was appointed to manage his affairs.  AAA refused to pay the expenses of the conservator, despite a previous ruling holding that the PIP carrier must pay the expenses of a guardian appointed to manage the medical care provided to a  severely injured victim of a motor vehicle collision.  The trial court agreed with the Auto Club.

On appeal, the Court noted that the PIP carrier must  pay a conservator's expenses whenever:  a) the expenses are incurred to manage the medically-related care or rehabilitation of an accident victim; or, b) the expenses are incurred as a direct result of the accident injuries and would not, otherwise, have been incurred.
