COMMON CAUSES OF DISFIGUREMENT INJURYIn many cases, disfigurements are caused by someone else’s negligence. Sometimes, it takes a fair amount of due diligence to identify the responsible party. If you think you may have a case against a negligent person or company, our lawyers will leave no stone unturned if we take your case. We will investigate every facet of your claim, and we will help you identify the responsible party. Most commonly, we help people who have been disfigured due to:
CAR ACCIDENTSCar accidents are the leading cause of disfigurement injury. Sadly, the high impact of a car crash can cause cuts, lacerations, broken bones, and other injuries that can all lead to permanent scarring, amputation and even loss of skin or bone.
BURNSBurns can be a tragedy for the injured person and their families. Burns can occur due to fire or chemicals—and many individuals find that the injury could have been prevented. If you suspect your burn injury may have been preventable, you may have a claim against the responsible party.
MEDICAL MALPRACTICEA doctor should be entrusted to do no harm. Unfortunately, negligent doctors can cause harm to patients leading to a disfigurement injury. Whether the procedure was elective (in the case of plastic surgery) or not, a case may be brought against a negligent doctor who caused a disfigurement.
DOG BITESEven the friendliest dog can bite. Dog bites can leave an injured person disfigured for life including loss of function in fragile areas such as the hands, feet, or face. In the worst of cases, dog bites can leave an injured person with a lifetime of nerve damage, lost fingers, and permanent scarring.
PRODUCT DESIGNBad products should never be allowed to make it to store shelves. Sadly, poorly designed products do make it to production because some companies simply fail to test their products appropriately. Product failure can lead to injury including disfigurement—leaving the injured person in a wake of medical bills, lost wages and needless pain and suffering.
SLIP AND FALL ACCIDENTSA slip and fall accident can lead to catastrophic injury including disfigurement. Often, a bad slip and fall accident can lead to broken bones which can break skin and cause disfigurement. In these cases, an attorney can identify the responsible party and help you file a claim for your injury.
CHILDREN’S DISFIGUREMENTThe stakes can be even higher – and more tragic – in the case of children’s disfigurement, especially when the injury could have been prevented. Sadly, children’s injuries can occur in any of the above scenarios but the implications may become greater considering how the injury may affect the child’s future. Sometimes, disfigurement may occur due to a birth defect. If the birth defect was due to the negligence of another person, you may have a claim against the responsible party.
