The Help You Need After Suffering A Serious Injury

Martin Haxel is the Smart Choice

Not only is there the pain and the challenges that come with recovery following a serious injury, but there will be financial obstacles as well. How will you pay medical bills? What will you do to cover other costs if the injury has caused you to miss work and lose paychecks?

At Haxel Law in Springfield, we take pride in being there for people during the tough times. Whether you were hurt at work or injured because of someone else's negligence, we will stand by your side to help you pursue fair compensation so you can move on with your life.

When We Say We Will Stand By Your Side, We Mean It

We are sincere about helping you get through this. When you choose our law firm, you will work directly with attorney Martin Haxel, who will handle your case personally. You will not have to worry about your case being passed from one attorney to the next. You will know who is handling your case at all times, and you will be updated regularly on your case's progress. If issues arise along the way, you will find us easy to get in touch with. The last thing we want is to add stress by leaving you wondering what is happening with your case.

We recognize that every case is different and comes with its own unique variables. Work injury cases are different from car, bike and pedestrian accident claims. A case involving a motorist who was hit by a drunk driver is going to be quite different from a case involving a law enforcement officer, firefighter or EMT who suffered an on-the-job injury. We have the experience and flexibility to customize our approach to the needs of each case.

How Will Your Case Unfold?

Workers' compensation and personal injury cases can seem mysterious for those who have never had to deal with them before. We are committed to taking away the mystery and giving you clear information about how your case will unfold. We are in a unique position, because we have handled these cases from both the plaintiff and the defense side. As the injured party, you are the plaintiff, and we can tell you from our experience how an employer or insurance company is likely to approach your case. Not only does that allow us to set the stage for you, but it also allows us to create the most appropriate strategy for obtaining meaningful results.

While many cases are resolved by negotiating a settlement, the assumption should never be made that an opponent will play fair. Having firsthand experience of how the other side works means we know that is not always the case. For that reason, we always prepare to fight. If a trial becomes necessary to get you the outcome you need, we will be ready. We have proven trial ability and our record of success is proof.

Our Satisfied Clients

Marty — and I will say Marty because he gave me the comfort when we first met that it was OK to address him this way — fought with and for me from the time I called about the accident until the day I received my compensation. He was thorough and did not allow me to be taken advantage of by the employer's insurance company. My workers comp checks started right away and the company paid all my medical bills for spinal fusion and therapy afterwards. He also sought Medicare-set-aside and it was awarded. I trusted Marty and he knew I was counting on him to enforce the laws to protect me in my accident and he did just that!"

"Marty maintained open communication with me. If I had a question, I would email and within a day at the latest, he would respond. I found him to be direct and honest with me, a rare trait these days. I never felt like I was left out of the process from start to finish. He is a likable guy and a good communicator."

"When I was injured at work, I wasn't sure what to do. I was referred to Martin Haxel. Mr. Haxel explained the responsibilities of my company and its insurance company as well as my rights. He made sure all medical expenses were taken care of and stayed current on my recovery progress. Once I was released from my doctor and physical therapy, Mr. Haxel dealt with the insurance company on my behalf and negotiated a fair settlement. I would recommend Martin Haxel to anybody in a similar situation. Thanks, Martin!"
Charles W.

"If you're looking for a great attorney, look no further than Martin Haxel. He is a very personable person who takes your case seriously and to the heart. Even though my case was time-consuming, he made me feel at ease, less stressed and left with a good feeling knowing he was taking care of everything. He got me a fair settlement. I would recommend him to everyone. He is not just my attorney now, he's a friend."
