When negligence or recklessness has contributed to disfigurement and scarring injuries, victims will likely be entitled to compensation.

After a motor vehicle accident, a fall accident or any type of personal injury accident, victims are generally afflicted with physical injuries and significant financial setbacks that can take them months or possibly even years to recover from. In the worst cases, the effects of an accident can have lifelong consequences that may impair an individual’s ability to work, perform day-to-day activities and/or even to socialize and enjoy relationships with his loved ones. In such cases, these severe personal injuries will undoubtedly have significant impacts on a person’s overall quality of life.

Disfigurement and scarring can qualify as such injuries because these types of physical impairments – particularly when they occur on highly visible areas of the body (like the face) and/or cover large areas of the body:

  • Can result in irreversible disabilities that can require expensive, ongoing medical treatments
  • Can impact a person’s ability to earn a living
  • Can seriously affect a person’s self-esteem.

When disfigurement and scarring has been caused or intensified by the negligence or recklessness of some other individual or party, it’s critical that injured people know that:

  • They likely have rights to compensation for their medical bills, mental anguish, lost wages and other losses.
  • They will have the best chances of securing the compensation to which they are entitled by working with the trusted Boulder personal injury attorneys at Cederberg Law.

Negligence That Can Cause Disfigurement and Scarring Injuries

Some specific examples of negligence and recklessness that can result in and be the basis of personal injury claims for disfigurement and scarring injuries include (but are not limited to):

  • Motor vehicle accidents caused, even in part, by driver intoxication, driver distraction, driver fatigue and/or driver inexperience
  • Motor vehicle accidents caused by drivers’ blatant disregard for traffic laws (like by, for example, speeding or running red lights)
  • Motor vehicle accidents caused by vehicle equipment failure and/or dangerous roadway conditions
  • Watercraft accidents (including boating and/or jet ski accidents) caused by operator errors or manufacturing defects
  • Construction site or industrial accidents caused by faulty or poorly maintained equipment, lack of safety training and/or workers’ reckless behaviors
  • Falling due to unsafe premises, such as a building owner’s failure to install guardrails on stairways, to keep well-traveled walkways free from obstructions, etc.
  • Dog bites or animal attacks
  • Defective products, which can form the basis of product liability claims when, for example, the manufacturer fails to properly test the safety of the product and/or produces the product out of hazardous or toxic materials.
