We can help you get the money you need to move on with your life.

Led by personal injury attorney Martin Haxel, our law firm is committed to helping victims of:

Our knowledge of the insurance industry informs us every step of the way. We build a specific strategy for each case we handle, as no two cases are the same. Still, we understand the unique challenges that come with certain situations.
Were you hit by a drunk driver or a driver who was texting and driving? We are knowledgeable in the laws that pertain to these issues. Were you hit by an uninsured or underinsured driver? We may be able to find a source of compensation to help you cover your medical bills, missed wages and other costs.
Assisting Injured Passengers After An Accident
Were you the passenger and was the driver negligent? We handle injured passenger claims. Whether you were the passenger in the vehicle that caused the crash or in the vehicle hit by another, pursuing a claim can be challenging. You may be hesitant to consider legal action when your family member or friend was driving. However, even if they were at fault, filing a claim seeks compensation from their insurance policy. We can advise you of the appropriate course of action to take given the circumstances.
Determining The Cause Of The Crash
To calculate the full and fair amount of compensation you deserve, we investigate the root cause of the crash. Common causes of car accidents include drunk driving, distracted driving, reckless driving given the road conditions and more.
Negligence is a common factor in what led to many accidents. A driver texting neglected his/her duties to give full attention to the task at hand. A driver speeding through snow or ice neglected to drive carefully given the poor winter weather conditions.
Of course, you may not know what sort of negligence caused the auto crash. That is where our investigation comes in. We will review the case to gather all the facts necessary to show that the other driver was negligent and should be held accountable. Whether through negotiation with the insurance company or trial by jury, we will pursue a positive outcome.
