Boston Scar Injury Lawyer
Although a scar is not a life-threatening injury, scars are most frequently permanent and can cause significant stress on the individuals they affect. In many scenarios, scars can be just as traumatizing as other severe car accident injuries. For many victims, a scar can be a constant reminder of the difficult situation they went through. If the scar is located in a prominent and visible place on the body, a scar can cause emotional problems as well.
If you have suffered a scar as a result of a car accident, fall down accident, workplace injury, or other accident as a result of another’s negligence, Michael Kelly Injury Lawyers can help you get the compensation you deserve. Our team is experienced at recovering money from insurance companies for victim’s medical bills, lost wages and future earning capacity, and pain and suffering. If you have been victimized by an accident and have suffered a scar or other permanent disfigurement, it will be important to consult a skilled physician to address the injury. Our attorneys work with physicians across Massachusetts and can put you in touch with a doctor that can help you.
A scar or permanent disfigurement can result in workplace discrimination, being passed over for jobs or promotions, and social embarrassment. We understand the difficult position these injuries put their victims in and work with our clients to address their injury and its side effects. Issues we take head on include: a long-term prognosis, the possibility of reconstructive cosmetic surgery, and the overall cost of these procedures.
Causes of Scars
A scar is an area of tissue that replaces skin after an injury. A scar can be your body’s natural reaction in protecting you after a puncture or laceration. Scarring can result from a wide variety of accidents, including:
- Car Accidents
- Trucking Accidents
- Pedestrian Accidents
- Cycling Accidents
- Slip and Fall Accidents
- Workplace Injuries
- Dog Bite Injuries
Types of Scars
There are many different types of scars. At Michael Kelly Injury Lawyers, we understand that it can be important for the victim of a scar or disfigurement to understand which type has affected them. Common scars or disfigurements are:
- Stretch Marks: Most frequently occur as a result of tissue healing.
- Hypertrophic Scars: Generally appearing as a red raised lump of skin.
- Contracture Scars: Generally resulting from burn injuries. These scars contract the skin often making it difficult to move the affected area of the body.
- Keloid: These scars are composed of collagen. These scars result from an overgrowth of tissue at the site of a healed skin injury.
- Atrophic: Scar that takes the form of a sunken recess in the skin, often taking on a pitted appearance.
