You Shouldn't Suffer Anymore Than You Already Have

Disfigurement is defined as the permanent harmful altering of a person’s appearance. While most people associate the face with disfigurement, any part of the body can be disfigured. Disfigurement of the face is one of the more severe types of disfigurement, but the hands, arms, legs, and other parts of the body that are visible in most clothing can also become disfigured. If you have experienced any type of accident which caused a disfiguring injury to any part of your body, you may have the right to be compensated for your pain, suffering, and disfigurement. A Manhattan personal injury attorney can help you file your disfigurement lawsuit.

One of the main causes of disfigurement is scarring. When there is a wound to the skin, the skin heals with scar tissue, which leaves a visible mark on the skin. Severe scarring can result in disfigurement to the affected body part. Burn injuries, cancer, amputation accidents, and birth defects can also cause disfigurement. If you developed a scar or other type of disfigurement in an accident that was caused by another person’s negligence, you should consider speaking with a personal injury lawyer to discuss filing a lawsuit. Scarring and disfigurement are serious and permanent injuries that the victim deserves to be compensated for.

Fight for the Financial Support You Need to Move Forward

There are many types of treatment for disfiguring injuries. First the initial injury must be treated. Whether it is a laceration, cancer, or an amputation, the underlying injury needs to be treated and healed before any other treatment can commence. Once the underlying injury has been treated, the victim can opt to undergo plastic surgery or reconstructive surgery to repair the disfigurement. Not all victims of disfigurement are candidates for these types of surgery, but those who do elect to have surgery must undergo additional painful medical treatment with extensive healing time.

The effect of a disfiguring injury is life-altering. Disfigurement can affect a person’s ability to form relationships, make a living, and engage with society. These struggles can lead to emotional and psychological difficulties, including depression and social anxiety. If you or someone you love have experienced a disfiguring injury, you should speak with one of the experienced NYC personal injury lawyers at Belushin Law Firm. An attorney who understands the seriousness of disfigurement can help to make sure you receive a fair settlement for your injuries.
