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.
Myth: “If I file a claim, it will increase the insurance premiums of my relative or friend.”
At Matz Injury Law, we often hear this from those who’ve suffered injuries in an accident in which they were a passenger in a vehicle driven by a family member or friend. However, an insurance claim is best resolved by an attorney and an insurance company.
Insurance exists to provide compensation when you have suffered a loss. Michigan’s “no-fault” system provides for wage loss, medical, and other benefits. You automatically qualify for the benefits if you are covered by a valid Michigan policy.
If you have been injured in an accident in the vehicle of a family member or friend, you have a valid insurance claim. Matz Injury Law can handle all aspects of your claim. Full and fair compensation will be sought from all possible sources without harming your family relations or friendship.
When we meet with you (whether in person or by Zoom,) 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 Injury Law 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.
