We won’t let insurance companies prevent a generous settlement.
If you’re injured because of the negligence of a truck driver, you have the right to claim compensation. But beware. Insurance companies will create obstacles to claims, making it difficult for accident victims to get the medical care and compensation they deserve. To protect your rights, you need lawyers who work on truck accident cases every day.
At Matz and Pietsch, we want to help you obtain the compensation you need to rebuild your life. We have the knowledge, resources, and determination to succeed in challenging cases involving tractor-trailer accidents, commercial vehicle accidents, and other acts of negligence.

Focused on your future.
When you meet with us in your home or our office, we'll listen to you and your concerns, explain the legal process and the issues in your case, and show you what can be done to help you get medical care and compensation.
Getting you medical care is our number one priority. If you don't have a doctor, we can help make sure you find the right doctor and receive the care and treatment you need without being burdened by insurance company delays or restrictions on your doctors.
We'll also identify all possible sources of compensation. This could include Michigan no-fault, uninsured/underinsured coverage, workers' compensation, liability insurance of the other driver, the insurance covering the owner of the at-fault vehicle, and policies covering you, your family members, and others.
We'll handle all aspects of your case. Our firm will communicate directly with insurance companies, adjusters, your benefits and medical bills, your property damage claim and others. This will give you the time to focus on getting better.
We seek full compensation. Matz and Pietsch will work tirelessly to help you get full compensation for all your losses, including medical costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
We won't leave money on the table. We'll try to resolve your case for the maximum value of your claim. During the legal process, we'll provide constant updates, keep you informed of important developments and provide supportive counsel at the right time.

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.
