Scarring And Facial Disfigurement
Scarring can occur from any type of accident. Car accidents can cause scarring in a number of different ways. The most common is where the impact from the collision causes contact with the inside of the vehicle, resulting in severe lacerations or gashes. Sometimes, accident victims are ejected from the vehicle or thrown from their motorcycle. Animal attacks can also cause severe scarring. A dog’s teeth and claws can cause significant and permanent scarring or disfigurement that can permanently alter one’s appearance. Despite corrective medicine such as stitches or plastic surgery, scars are permanent and often change, for better or for worse, over time. Our attorneys can represent you in any scarring injury, including:
- Vehicle accident scars, including lacerations from broken glass
- Scars from dog attacks
- Scars from burns, fires or explosions
- Chemical exposure scars
- Scars from surgical procedures after an injury
- Scars from malfunctioning products
- Scars from construction mishaps
- Scarring that requires surgery and laser resurfacing
Obtaining Reconstructive Surgery And Therapy
Some people undergo reconstructive or plastic surgery following a serious injury. You may also go through mental health therapy to deal with the psychological effects of scarring and disfigurement. At Sobo & Sobo, we can often incorporate the cost of surgeries to reduce scarring and disfigurements, and the cost of therapy into your settlement.”
