NYC Disfigurement Injury Lawyers
Following a severe accident, the victim(s) may receive lifelong scarring and other bodily disfigurements, ranging from burn scars to TMJ injuries. Sometimes, the victim may have to go through some form of reconstructive or aesthetic surgery, especially in burn injury or serious scarring cases. Other times, the victim may have to endure and live with his or her injuries (and in some cases, these injuries will be obviously visible forever). When the injured individual has to suffer disfigurement through no fault of his/her own, it is essential to contact the leading NYC disfigurement injury lawyers at Hoffmaier & Hoffmaier to pursue justice and hold the responsible party(s) accountable for their actions.
Accidents Resulting in Disfigurement
Due to the nature of many disfigurement injuries, these injuries often come suddenly and without warning. And in an instant, the victim’s life is dramatically changed. Whether minor or serious, a disfigurement injury can occur in some of the following situations:
- Car accidents
- Dog bites or animal attacks
- Bicycle accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Chemical exposure
- Pedestrian accidents
- Premises liability
- Electrical accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Workplace accidents
Obvious signs of scarring and disfigurement can pose aesthetic, physical, and other intangible difficulties. These can include inflexibility or other potential effects around the site of the scarred flesh, emotional and social difficulties, professional difficulties, and psychological distress.
Seeking Compensation For Your Disfigurement Injury
When a disfigurement injury was caused by the reckless and/or negligent action of another individual, you shouldn’t have to bear the long-term financial damages of this injury. Of course, the injury will require immediate medical intervention and possibly surgery. In the long run, however, the victim may require emotional counseling, further cosmetic surgery such as skin grafts, medical equipment at home, and other amenities. Furthermore, a young person may have to confront difficulties getting married, finding a job, being accepted in various communities, and living a normal life, especially if the scarring or disfigurement is particularly severe.
