My firm is dedicated to helping those who have been severely injured and big insurance companies whose sole goal is to not properly compensate those who have been injured.
I have seen over and over how insurance companies see weakness in the injured as their advantage. They see that they have the money and time and can wait out those who have been injured who need medical treatment and need help now.
I have dedicated my firm to helping those who have been permanently injured and to those who need a voice and need to be heard now and not when the insurance companies get around to it. My firm presses the issue to help those whose lives have been permanently altered due to the negligence of the insurance companies defendant(s).

Certain types of injuries that may result from an automobile accident range from:
â¢ Traumatic brain injuries: One of the most common and debilitating injuries suffered by drivers and passengers is an acquired brain injury caused by the head being hit or hitting an object violently (called a traumatic brain injury). Symptoms can be mild, moderate or severe, depending on the extent of damage to the brain and the area affected. Even when there is no visible sign of trauma (i.e., cuts or bruises), the brain may have been jostled inside the skull due to the force of impact causing bruising, bleeding and swelling of the brain.
â¢ Spinal cord damage resulting in paralysis, paraplegia, quadriplegia or permanent damage: The damage to the spinal cord is caused when displaced bone fragments, disc material, or ligaments bruise or tear into spinal cord tissue, destroying axons, the part of our nerve cells that carry signals up and down the spinal cord between the brain and the rest of the body. Damage to the spinal cord often results in a loss of function or feeling.
â¢ Back: The lower back is the most common site of back injuries, including sprains and strains, herniated discs and fractured vertebrae. These injuries can cause pain and limit your mobility. Sometimes the symptoms of even the most serious back injuries can take some time to show up after an accident. Unfortunately, back injury can cause long lasting pain and discomfort.
â¢ Neck strains: Another common form of injury from a car accident is neck injuries, which can occur in more mild forms such as whiplash and neck strain, to more serious injuries like cervical dislocation and disc injury.
â¢ Permanent scarring: In a car accident, injuries to the face are common and can be caused by the steering wheel, dashboard, airbag, windshield, side window, car seats or shattered glass. These injuries range in severity from scrapes and bruises, to laceration and fractures, even serious disorders affecting the jaw and dental injuries.
â¢ Loss of limb or body part: The loss of limb, even of the smallest body parts can be severely debilitating to a personâs mental condition as well as more than likely requiring very intricate and expensive implants or prosthetics to allow a person to lead a normal life throughout the rest of that personâs life.
â¢ Internal injuries: The impact of a motor vehicle accident can cause internal injuries, including injuries to bowels, kidneys, the spleen, liver, lungs, heart or aorta. Fractured ribs are also quite common, causing punctured lungs and other internal organs. Internal injuries are life threatening and should be treated by a medical professional immediately.
â¢ Psychological injuries: Motor vehicle accidents involving severe injuries and even loss of life can result in drivers and passengers suffering short or long-term psychological injuries such as emotional distress, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), persistent anxiety and depression. These psychological injuries can affect every facet of a personâs life and have long-lasting effects.
â¢ Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy syndrome: RSD is an older term used to describe one form of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). Both RSD and CRPS are nerve disorders characterized by chronic severe burning pain, pathological changes in bone and skin, excessive sweating, tissue swelling and extreme sensitivity to touch. RSD is unique in that it affects the nerves, skin, muscles, blood vessels and bones at the same time. RSD is is most often caused by trauma to the extremities, some conditions that can bring RSD about are sprains, fractures, surgery, damage to blood vessels or nerves and certain brain injuries.
Suffering from severe injuries like these result is loss in enjoyment of life and can be very complex to present in court. Our attorneys are skilled to present any type of injury to a jury so they can understand a plaintiff's injury.
Most personal injury cases result in general damages, but in serious injury cases, you need to make sure you hire the right personal injury attorney who knows how to handle situations like yours or your loved one because they will need to execute the appropriate strategies to show and convince the judge and jury that compensation is deserved.
James Haug's firm is dedicated to achieving that goal for each and every one of his clients.
