Motor Vehicle Accidents
Champaign Car Accident Attorney
Injured in a Car Crash?
A car accident can change your life in the blink of an eye. You may be seriously injured, unable to work or even care for yourself. You may have back injuries that require ongoing physical therapy. Your car may be so damaged that you cannot get to work. If these concerns sound familiar, we can help. At our Champaign-Urbana law firm, Frederick & Hagle, our attorneys have been helping victims of auto accidents since 1975. We can help you, too.
Injured While a Passenger?
Passengers in vehicles are just as entitled to compensation as the owner of the vehicle. Just because you let someone else do the driving does not mean that you are not entitled to a recovery. This includes injuries sustained by passengers on a bus. When there are a large number of injured parties, your personal recovery may be limited by the coverage and assets of the driver, and there may be a large number of other people fighting for a small amount of money. Contact us immediately so that Frederick & Hagle can help you stake your rightful claim before it is too late.

If you have a case, we will help.
