Rehabilitative services and long-term care.
After a serious spinal cord injury, there may be a need for significant long-term care and rehabilitative services, all of which can be very costly.
At Matz and Pietsch, our first priority is helping our clients get all of the medical care, long-term care, and rehabilitative services they need. Our personal injury attorneys will work with medical specialists to map out a lifetime of care and services required. Then, we'll stand up for you in settlement negotiations or at trial, to obtain full compensation for your losses and all necessary medical care and services.
In Wayne County, Sam Pietsch negotiated an agreement with an insurance company for a client who suffered a spinal cord injury. The agreement included compensation for a specially equipped home and a wheelchair-accessible van. Sam worked with a school district and hospital medical team to provide nursing care and special education services for the client under the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act.
Whether it involves a herniated disc or paralysis, you can depend on Matz and Pietsch for skillful, results-oriented representation.
What does 22not33 mean, exactly?
Other law firms charge 33% of a net settlement amount. Our contingent fee is only 22%. (Remember, you are responsible to reimburse case costs spent by any attorney.) For example: A lawyer wins a $100,000 “net settlement” (deduction of costs spent by your attorney to prepare your case, taken “off the top” of your settlement total before the fee is calculated). If the attorney is charging a 33% fee, you would get about $67,000. If you were charged just 22% — which is our fee — you would receive about $78,000.
