Omaha Scarring & Disfigurement Lawyers

Help for Victims of Scarring & Disfigurement Injuries

Severe cuts and burns can result in permanent scarring or disfigurement. These types of painful injuries have physical and emotional consequences. Many victims of permanent injuries, scarring and disfigurement struggle adapting to their new life and feel weighed down by the financial burdens that come with treating and rehabilitating their injuries.

Disfigurement can occur as a result of injuries suffered in situations like a car accident or dog attack. Regardless of how the injuries are suffered, treating injuries and repairing them with cosmetic surgery can be painful and costly for victims and their families. If you have suffered these types of serious injuries, the experienced Omaha injury lawyers at Cullan & Cullan LLC can help you seek and obtain just compensation for all your injuries and losses.

Injuries That Cause Scarring

Many types of injuries can result in permanent scars and disfigurement. Motorcyclists often suffer severe lacerations and road rash injuries that can cause permanent scarring. Victims of car or structural fires suffer from burn injuries that could leave them severely disfigured. Other scarring and disfigurement injuries may result from animal attacks, construction accidents, electrocutions, explosions, car accidents, pedestrian accidents, and road hazards.

There are three types of scars that burn injuries can cause:

  • Contracture - This is the permanent tightening of the skin
  • Hypertrophic - This is the increase in the volume of the skin
  • Keloid - This is an overgrowth of scar tissue

Treatment and Costs Associated with Serious Scarring and Disfigurement

Surgeries and treatments are available to help injury victims who have suffered permanent scarring and disfigurement. But, they are not 100 percent effective, and insurance providers do not always cover them. Some victims pursue plastic surgery, reconstructive surgery, skin grafts or even the surgical removal of scar tissue.

If you have suffered a serious laceration or burn injury, it is crucial that you receive immediate medical attention. The severity of your scars could be lessened by prompt and appropriate treatment. When you are ready to pursue compensation for your current and future related medical bills, make sure you reach out to an experienced Omaha personal injury lawyer who has a history of handling similar cases.

Permanent scars and disfigurement cases are unique because they must take future suffering into account. Many injury claims only result in support for the immediate future, but disfigurements and permanent scars are often permanent. Financial support should be available for all of the medical treatments required, including plastic surgery. Support should also be available for occupational therapy and counseling if the victim is struggling to recover physically and emotionally after an accident. Call our Omaha disfigurement lawyers at (402) 882-7080 to find out how Cullan & Cullan LLC can help you receive the support you rightfully deserve.
