Claims for Scarring and Facial Scars in Florida Car Accident Cases
If you have been injured in a Florida car accident due to the negligence of someone else, it is likely that you are entitled to compensation. To prevail in a Florida personal injury claim, an injured victim must show that the negligence of the at-fault driver (or pedestrian, bicyclist, and so on) was the direct cause of the victim’s injuries.
Scarring and facial scars are examples of injuries that may give rise to a personal injury claim. These injuries may be caused by broken glass, burns, or the physical impact of an accident. Surgeries to repair injuries caused by an accident may also leave scars.
Serious scarring may also lead to psychological injuries, especially if the scars are on the victim’s face. The victim may have anxiety about going out in public or may suffer from depression as a result of his or her changed appearance. The mental anguish the victim suffers after an accident may also be compensable in a Florida personal injury claim.
Personal injury lawyers work diligently to make sure accident victims are fairly compensated for the physical and mental trauma they have endured after a crash. These attorneys carefully review medical records, photographs, and eyewitness statements to gain an understanding of the effect the crash has had on the victim. Then, these attorneys put together a case that supports the allegations against the at-fault driver and demands a reasonable sum of money to compensate the victim.
Many insurance companies attempt to convince an accident victim to settle a claim for a fraction of what it is worth. However, with a serious injury attorney on your team, you may rest assured that you receive the highest amount of compensation you are entitled to under Florida law.
