Compensation for Scarring and Disfigurement
North Carolina Personal Injury Lawyers
Unlike chronic pain or a concussive trauma, scarring, or disfigurement
leaves you with lasting damage that everyone can see. This not only affects
your interactions with others at your job or in your everyday life, it
also causes mental anguish and jeopardizes your self-confidence. Scar
tissue also can be physically painful and restrict your movements, activities,
and ability to live your life and work at your job.
If someone else’s negligence caused your scars or disfigurement,
you may deserve compensation for the following:
- Your medical bills
- Lost wages
- Diminished earning capacity
- Additional pain and suffering
The North Carolina personal injury attorneys at Twiggs, Strickland & Rabenau understand your hardship and work
tirelessly on your claim.
Different Forms & Causes of Disfigurement
Almost any injury can leave you with a scar or lasting wound.
Scars can be the result of:
Accidents — A collision or mishap can leave you with scars from lacerations and fractured
bones when you are in a
Burns — A
fires or explosions can cause
burn injuries that leave scars on part or all of your body that may require multiple
surgeries and rehabilitation
When you’ve been in a serious accident, of if you’ve been hurt
by someone’s negligence or wrongdoing, it is important that you
do not suffer alone. Medical treatments have come a long way and certain
forms of scarring and disfigurement does not have to be a lasting condition.
However, procedures can be expensive so it is important that you seek
compensation to help pay for your often substantial medical bills.
