Durham Permanent Disfigurement Attorney

Compensation for Scarring and Disfigurement

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 Durham 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 car, truck, or motorcycle accident
  • 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, or 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.
