Compensation in wrongful death cases.
Under Michigan's no-fault insurance system, the immediate family of a wrongful death victim may claim compensation for survivor's loss benefits, funeral costs and medical costs. The family may also make a separate claim for lost future wages and loss of companionship and society.
Matz and Pietsch will carefully examine the circumstances of your case and make a full accounting for all economic and noneconomic losses. We'll work to build a strong case designed to obtain the best possible result for you.
What you need to know.
Wrongful death cases begin by opening an estate in probate court. The decision regarding which family member will head the estate is a critical judgment that often must be made immediately after the tragedy. Our firm will take care of all aspects of your case, including getting the estate opened in probate court. While you grieve for your loss, Matz and Pietsch will work hard to build a strong case for you and your family.
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.
