We Will Fight for Your Right to Receive Fair Compensation
A dog bite, a slip and fall or a serious car accident: what all these incidents have in common is that they can cause scarring and disfigurement. Recovering from a serious accident is a roller coaster ride of sorts for many people. The bad news of
trauma is followed by good news of survival. Then comes more challenges of medical treatment, therapy, and rehabilitation. Most injuries can heal. However, lasting harm caused by a serious accident is a special kind of loss.
Helping You Recover
I have worked with many clients who had suffered permanent losses such as scarring and disfigurement. We know that money can't give a seriously injured person his or her unflawed
body back. However, we have helped most clients obtain the compensation that would allow them to get plastic surgery. Facial and other types of reconstruction surgery can accomplish wonders in many cases.
Psychological injury and social challenges, resulting from scarring or disfigurement, are often more difficult to overcome than physical aspects of a burn injury or amputation injury. We know that children are often teased by their peers and young men or women, in particular, report difficulties in their social lives after suffering scarring or disfigurement. We also know that there are many variables that can affect a person's ability to cope with scarring or disfigurement, such as, where on the body you are scarred or disfigured.
Naturally, the more prominent scarring - such as on the face or hands - the more difficult it can be to live with. If we represent you after an accident that has left you scarred or disfigured, rest assured that we are prepared to advocate zealously on your behalf.
Your Rights to Recover After a Permanent Injury
One of the most severe injuries is disfigurement or
scarring after an accident. Victims suffer both the physical trauma, as well as the emotional challenges of adjusting to life after permanent disfigurement. I am experienced in representing victims and families of facial trauma and scarring of other parts of the body. I understand the difficulties and challenges, as well as the physical and emotional pain of such injuries. As your lawyer, I will take every necessary step to help you recover the compensation you deserve.
Physical and Emotional Pain After Disfigurement
In addition to helping you seek appropriate medical care, including reconstructive surgery, I will work collaboratively with you and your family to secure other resources, including counseling, therapy, and other support so that you can move forward after an injury. I will work with experts, including psychologists, accident reconstructionists
and medical professionals who can testify to the extent of your injury, including permanent damage to senses

Scar Injury Attorney
The State of Florida requires that a person sustain a permanent injury in order to bring a liability claim against a defendant after a motor vehicle accident. To collect compensation, in addition to medical costs and lost wages, I will use evidence of disfigurement to demonstrate the severity of your injuries and losses. Any permanent scar, defect or disfigurement is considered a permanent injury and gives the victim a right to pursue personal injury claims for pain and suffering and other personal losses.
