Disfigurement & Scarring

Injury from a major accident, assault or medical malpractice can cause a great deal of physical pain. If the incident also leaves you with a permanent disfigurement, the emotional toll can be equally as high.

A disfigurement can both change your appearance and cause functional deficiencies. A serious burn may leave you with much scar tissue and nerve damage to the skin. A vehicular accident can easily sever body parts or damage them to the point that amputation is necessary. Our law firm fights for injury victims. We can hold accountable those individuals and companies who are responsible.

Disfigurement can occur due to a number of incidents such as major car accidents, heat or chemical burns, workplace accidents and medical mistakes. Often, these incidents occur through no fault of your own and leave you with a permanent daily reminder of a traumatic event. Without legal help, insurance companies are not likely to offer you sufficient compensation for your suffering. You need a personal injury attorney behind you to protect your rights.

Lacerations are irregular, jagged-edged wounds to skin and muscle tissue, usually caused by a blunt force as opposed to an incised cut, which is caused by a sharp object and has straight edges. A severe laceration can damage skin, muscle and nerves to the point of irreversible damage. In addition, lacerations often leave scars.

Scarring is a very common form of disfigurement. While a wound may heal and you may regain most or all functionality of the body part, scars can be constant reminders of the incident. If the scarring is to a highly visible part of your body, like your face, it can also change the way the world perceives you as well as the way you perceive yourself. Plastic surgery can be a treatment for disfigurement, but it can also cause it as sometimes happens during procedures like breast augmentation.
