Back and Spinal Cord Injuries

Steve Matz and his team have been practicing law in Michigan for decades. They’ve logged hundreds of thousands of miles traveling to virtually every county in Michigan’s lower and upper peninsulas, meeting with clients, and doing the work necessary to earn significant settlements on their clients’ behalf.

Our Fee is 22% not 33%

We’ll help make your finances less painful.

At Matz Injury Law, we work hard to help our clients get the financial resources and care they need to rebuild their lives. We have had great success helping spinal cord injury victims get medical care, rehabilitation services and compensation for economic and noneconomic losses, including pain and suffering.

If you or a loved one has suffered a back or spinal cord injury, please call us. In our free consultation with you, one of our attorneys can review your case and explain how we can

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 Injury Law, 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, we 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. We 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 Injury Law for skillful, results-oriented representation.

    We’ve earned $300 million+ for our Michigan clients.
    © Matz Injury Law.
    The maximum contingency fee permitted by law is actually 33 1/3%. Michigan court rules require that the attorney fee be computed on the net sum recovered after deducting all disbursements properly chargeable to the enforcement of the claim.

    What does 22not33 mean, exactly?

    We can charge 22% while virtually all other injury attorneys charge 33 1/3% because we are very, very good at obtaining results for our clients. 

    We do not spend millions of dollars on television ads. Instead we offer a lower fee to our clients.  We don’t have dozens of lower paid associates handling our work. All of our clients are represented by Steven and Jared Matz. Steven Matz started the firm in 1977 and since then has dedicated his life to representing injury victims.  Jared joined the firm in 2016 but grew up listening to stories, discussing theories, and generally learning at the dinner table about how to effectively and compassionately represent injury victims. Jared Matz was literally born to represent individuals involved in motor vehicle crashes.

    All of our cases are handled on a contingency fee and all of our cases are handled at 22%. Whether the case settles or goes through trial, the fee does not change. While our competitors make excuses as to why they charge so much, we are obtaining results for our clients at a lower fee.

    At a typical television advertising law firm, your first call will be handled by a receptionist, who may refer you to an intake person, who will discuss your claim with an intake manager, who then discusses your claim with an associate, who may then report to a partner. You may never speak with the person whose name is at the top of the letterhead. At Matz Injury Law you will always speak with either Steven Matz or Jared Matz.  

    As required by the Michigan Court Rules, all fees are calculated after first deducting reasonable costs.
