Head and Brain 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%

Providing valuable answers when they’re needed most.

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?

These are some of the questions of family members of brain injury victims. Unfortunately, there are no simple solutions. It takes expert medical attention, considerable financial resources, and the love of family to help a brain injury victim get better.

At Matz Injury Law, we have a great deal of experience in cases involving head injury and traumatic brain injury. We understand the medical, financial, and personal aspects, and we work hard to help our clients get the medical care and compensation they need to rebuild their lives.

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 Injury Law 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, we 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 Injury Law 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.

    We’ve earned $300 million+ for our Michigan clients.

    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 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.
