Serious Fractures And Scarring/Disfigurement
Even a minor accident can result in serious injuries. Broken bones and other injuries can lead to lifelong problems such as physical disabilities, scarring and disfigurement. If you are dealing with the aftermath of broken bones and extensive scarring, it is important to know that you have options for seeking justice for compensation from the negligent party who caused your injuries.
At Dixon & Daley, LLP, our Whittier area personal injury attorneys have been helping clients deal with damages and losses, including pain and suffering, for more than 40 years. We are sensitive to the needs of clients who may be struggling not only to heal and recover from the injuries, but to come to terms with how these injuries may impact the rest of their lives. We are committed to helping clients get the compensation they need to effectively address the medical care and physical accommodations that need to be made as well as any mental and emotional issues that may need to be addressed.
Any type of broken bone can lead to additional issues, including physical disabilities. Healing and recovery time may depend on a number of factors, including:
- The immediate medical attention that was received
- The proper setting of the bone
- The extent of the breaks
- Any infections that may have developed
Certain types of fractures may constitute an even more serious situation if the fracture is compound (where the bone comes through the skin upon breaking) or if the injury is so severe that it is considered a crush injury where the bone has been completely crushed and shattered.
Scarring And Disfigurement
Scarring from any type of injuries can lead to a range of issues. Scarring can require multiple medical treatments, including plastic surgeries in order to correct and make you as comfortable as possible. In some cases, scarring can be so severe that it causes disfigurement. This can affect all aspects of an individual’s life, including one’s self-esteem, self-image and other mental states.
