Client Testimonials

“Following a near head on collision that left my wife with serious injuries to her leg and a head injury from the air bag that caused “instant onset dementia”, she has been deteriorating and needs constant supervision. Hats off to Steve Matz and all the work he and his firm have done to secure the compensation needed from the insurance company to facilitate her care. Without his tireless help I don’t know where we would be today. I highly recommend Matz Injury Law and if needed would definitely utilize them again.” — Thomas C.

“I worked with Steve and his staff for almost 3 years. Every interaction I had with him or the staff was great. Always happy, very personable, and always pleasant to speak with. Steve goes above and beyond for his clients and for this I am very grateful to have worked with him. If ever in need again, he will be who I contact to represent me.” — Jessica D.

Our History Serving Rochester Michigan

Auto accidents can occur anywhere, anytime, and can happen to anyone, causing catastrophic property damage and injuries. When you are out in Rochester Hills headed for Stony Creek or Bald Mountain, all you want is a peaceful day out, but when an irresponsible motorist strikes you, your entire life can change in an instant.

How we Continue to To Support Our Long Term Clients

We have been working on a case with a client in Rochester since he was two years old. He was the passenger in a car accident and sustained multiple injuries which prohibited him from developing beyond the age of two. Our client’s parents now care for him full-time and need special equipment and care to fulfill his needs.

Our law firm was able to receive compensation for our client for both long-term health care costs, and in-home care from the parents and professionals. When there was a change of law in Michigan and the parents began receiving less in the amount of payments for their child’s care, we took aggressive action because lack of care puts our client’s life on the line.

We took the insurance company back to court, and had the judge call an injunction considering that our client would die without proper care. We were able to save our client’s life, and get him the care he needed by forcing the insurance company to continue the payments needed throughout the lawsuit which we ultimately and justly won for our client a year later.

Frequent Answered Questions

Why Is It Important to Hire a Local Car Accident Lawyer in Rochester, Michigan?

Having a law firm in your corner with practice areas in car accidents gives you the best chance to fight back against bullying insurance companies and secure maximum fair compensation for your accident. Insurance companies know how to use personal injury law against you, but the right attorney can fight back, build a solid case for you, and remind the insurance company that you are the victim and that you deserve compensation for the injuries you have suffered.

Is Rochester, Michigan a No-Fault City for Car Accidents?

No-fault laws are by state, not city. Michigan is a no-fault state for car accidents. This means you file a claim with your own insurance instead of against the at-fault driver’s policy.

  • No-fault laws only apply to car accidents and not to other kinds of personal injury cases, such as falls or dog bites.
  • No-fault laws do not mean no one is at fault for the accident but requires drivers to carry “no-fault insurance,” or personal injury protection (PIP) coverage.

Theoretically, no-fault laws should make it easier to obtain compensation for damages, but insurance companies often exploit holes in these laws. This is why you want a qualified Rochester car accident attorney by your side.

How Long After a Car Accident Can You File a Claim in Rochester, Michigan?

The deadline to file a car accident is called a statute of limitations. In Michigan, this is three years from the date of the accident, or in the case of wrongful death, three years from the date of death.
