Personal Injury Lawyer For Scarring
Many accidents leave innocent victims with personal injuries that can last a lifetime. Scarring is one of these injuries. It can be a daily, enduring reminder of an accident. Scarring can severely impact one’s level of self-confidence. If you need a personal injury lawyer for scarring, here is some information for you.
Scarring can be caused by almost any type of accident. For example, dog bite attacks almost always leave a victim with scarring and possible disfigurement. Children are sadly many times bitten on the face which can cause permanent facial scarring. Adults too can be the victim of dog bites, and they can suffer myriad injuries from these attacks.
Motor vehicle accidents too can result in scarring. Sometimes if glass shatters from an accident, it can leave a scar. Or, if one’s knee smashes against dashboard, scarring to the knees is quite possible.
Another common source of scarring is from workers’ compensation accidents. By law though, in order to qualify for compensation, the scarring must be on the face, hands, or neck. The amount of compensation available is determined by the Department of Industrial Accidents.
How Much Money Can I Get For Scarring?
It really depends on many different factors. It depends on things like gender, age, prominence of the scar, location, type of scar, coloring, depth, etc. These cases can result in very significant financial compensation. That is because these are permanent injuries that the victim of the personal injury accident must live with for life.
