Houston Scarring & Disfigurement Lawyers
A largely overlooked aspect of personal injuries is the trauma of receiving a permanent scar or disfigurement due to an accident.
Some of the following are major causes of scarring and disfigurement:
How Can a Lawsuit Be Filed for These Injuries?
While many accidents result in scars or disfigurements, there are two main categories of scars. A scar or disfigurement can either be medically reversible or irreversible depending on the nature of the injury. In both circumstances, the injured may file suit against an entity for their role in causing the scar or disfigurement. In the case of a medically reversible scar or disfigurement that is caused by another entity, it is entirely possible that that entity be sued for the medical expenses that the injured incurred in reversing the damage.
Some examples of medical costs that could be covered under a scarring and disfigurement injury claim:
- Reconstructive Surgery
- Skin Graphs
- Synthetic Hair
- Plastic Surgery
- Bone Reconstruction
These medical procedures are expensive and there is no reason the innocent party should have to pay for it themselves. In the event of permanent scars and disfigurements, it is possible that a client can file for emotional trauma. Their outward appearance will never be the same again, which can cause depression, anger, or social anxiety. These symptoms are completely understandable given the circumstances, and it is more than fair to ask that the responsible party be held accountable for the emotional trauma of the injured.
