Why does my loved one act so differently? Will he or she ever be the person he used to be? How will our family be affected if my spouse can no longer work?

Recovering from a head injury.
The effects of a serious head injury are not always apparent. It may take months for the true effects to become evident. A thorough and accurate evaluation of the injury is essential before a settlement with an insurance company is determined.
In your case, Matz and Pietsch will work with neuropsychologists and other medical specialists to determine the true extent of the injury and its long-term effects. Then we'll work diligently to help you obtain compensation for medical care, vocational rehabilitation services, lost income, and pain and suffering.
In one Michigan case, Sam Pietsch negotiated a settlement of over $1,000,000 for a brain and spine injury victim who lost control of her vehicle when it hit a puddle on the expressway.
For over three decades, Matz and Pietsch has been helping victims of brain injuries and their families get the medical care, services, and compensation they deserve. We'll work to build a strong and comprehensive case designed to obtain maximum compensation for your losses and the care and services your loved one deserves.
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.
