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.

We have earned over 300+ million dollars
for our Michigan clients.
The maximum contingency fee permitted by law is actually 331/3%. 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.
We can charge 22% while virtually all other injury attorneys charge 331/3% 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 all our clients. We do not have dozens of lower paid associates handling our work. All 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 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.
