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 Injury Law 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.
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 Injury Law will work hard to build a strong case for you and your family.
