What causes scarring and disfiguring injuries?
Our Phoenix catastrophic injury attorneys proudly provide our knowledge and experience to help people who are left with a lifetime of scarring and disfigurement, such as:
- Severe burns. While the medical community has been successful at lowering the incidents of death from severe burn injuries, these incidents still often result in permanent scarring and disfigurement. Even with the highest level of medical treatment, severe burns can leave significant scarring because the depth of the burn may prevent the skin from healing properly. Another permanent result of a serious burn is contracture. As explained by Phoenix Skin Dermatology, burn contractures occur when scarred tissue tightens to the point of limiting mobility. The scarring reaches deeper than your skin, affecting muscles and nerves.
- Amputations. The loss of a limb can affect a victim in various ways. The injury requires substantial medical treatment, along with expensive rehabilitation and assistance with daily needs. According to the National Institute of Health (NIH) amputation can lead to deep depression and grief over the loss. Some victims may even develop an obsessive preoccupation with the absent limb.
- Dog bites. Dog bites and other injuries that puncture the flesh of the body can leave permanent, disfiguring scars. The jagged edges of a dog’s teeth can tear at the skin, causing damage deep below the outer layers. The most serious bites may require numerous surgeries and still leave permanent disfigurement upon healing.
Experienced attorneys who understand the devastating effects of facial disfigurement
Though any permanent injuring can have serious consequences on a victim’s life, facial scarring and disfigurement can prove particularly difficult to handle. When permanent scarring or disfigurement affects a victim's face, it can have far-reaching consequences. A victim may experience severe depression or anxiety about going out into the world. Bullying may become an issue, especially among younger victims. These conditions may require extensive mental health treatment, which can quickly create a substantial financial burden on the victim and the family.
