After being involved in a San Diego car crash, the recovery process is often stressful and takes a toll on all of those involved. As discussed previously, injuries such as burns, loss of a limb, facial scarring, nerve damage or loss of motor functions may be classified as disfiguring. As an injured party you should look into filing a personal injury claim through a San Diego law firm.
Long-Term Implications of Disfiguring Injuries
It is important to realize and fully understand the severity of these injuries. Permanent injury, whether the lasting effects are physically limiting or alter your physical appearance, can impact you and your family in a number of ways.
This process of accepting the permanent changes may warrant the need for:
- Time off of work;
- Individual/couple/family counseling; and/or
- Participation in self-help groups to surround yourself with others who face similar challenges.
It will be up to you to decide how you want to deal with any scarring or visible changes that result from your injuries. Some options include reconstructive surgery, wigs, new clothing, cosmetic tattoos or simply make-up.
How a San Diego Law Office Can Help
It may be in your best interest to pursue a personal injury claim for your San Diego car crash. Your serious injuries may have occurred at the fault of another person, in which case you are entitled to pursue damages for all of the expenses and suffering you have endured. Especially in the case of a serious injury that resulted in permanent damage, the costs will be extremely high and you deserve to recover damages.
When you consult with a San Diego law firm and file a claim, you may be able to recover the following costs:
- Medical expenses;
- Property damage and repair;
- Lost wages;
- Costs associated with addressing a disfiguring injury (such as prosthetic limbs in the case of amputation or plastic surgery in the case of scarring); and/or
- Pain and suffering.
