Scarring that is extensive and severe can effect one’s life dramatically. There is no permanent serious scarring that anyone would ever want on any part of their bodies, but historically facial scarring has often been considered the most devastating as one is severely limited in his or her ability to cover the scarring to the face and the face plays such an important part in our physical and emotional make-up.
Injuries can leave a person’s body or face and head in a condition where no amount of plastic surgery or reconstruction can return the person’s previous shape or appearance. Injuries of this kind to any part of the body would be traumatic. Injuries to the face or head again creates special problems. Physical and emotional issues will need to be dealt with, as with scarring, misshaping of the face or head creates special problems.
As with any injury, medical treatment must be obtained in a timely manner. Of equal importance is the need to follow up on the medical treatment so that:
- You are treated properly.
- There is a proper record.
Additionally a law firm should be retained as soon as possible to deal with the insurance company and ensure the case progresses properly. A law firm should be retained because the issues involved are very complicated and there are simply so many issues to deal with.
