Pursuing Maximum Compensation For Scarring And Disfigurement Injuries
Certain types of injuries can leave lasting scars that affect your life in many ways. Unfortunately, insurance companies may offer little in the way of compensation for disfigurement. It often takes the help of an experienced attorney to receive the compensation you deserve.

Scarring From Catastrophic Injuries and Burns
When you suffer a deep cut, road rash, chemical burn or other type of skin trauma, you may not know for several months the full extent of permanent scarring that may result. Everyone heals differently. For this reason, you should not accept a settlement until you know how significant the scar will be and what future treatment you may need to revise or minimize scarring.
While some scars soften and fade with time, others can result in permanent disfigurement. Treatment options may include surgery, massage or injections. If a child is injured, doctors may want to wait until the child is older before performing surgery.
The amount of compensation you may receive for scarring depends on several factors, including the location of the scar, the type of scarring and the future treatment costs. Our lawyers will work with medical experts to ensure you receive enough compensation to take advantage of the best treatment options for your situation.
