Is the scar from your accident the first thing people notice about you? Are you reminded of that awful day every time you look in the mirror? Was there damage to the underlying muscles or nerves? An altered appearance takes an emotional and psychological toll. Visible scars and disfiguring injuries can also have a social impact or even affect job prospects. Many victims suffer additional hardships through restorative surgery.
Louisiana injury law permits a separate award for scarring and disfiguring. This often amounts to significant damages on top of other injury compensation. Even if your other injuries were minor, you might be entitled to a substantial settlement for visible scars or disfigurement.
The legal team at the Law Office of John W. Redmann, LLC, excels at getting full value for serious personal injuries. We have helped clients maximize compensation for scarring and disfigurement, in stand-alone claims or in conjunction with other injuries.
Trial lawyer John Redmann and his team handle disfigurement claims in auto accidents and in other personal injury cases such as dog bites, falling accidents, fires or botched surgeries. We even obtained a notable recovery against a nail salon after our client’s toe was sliced during a pedicure, leaving a nasty scar.
We work closely with clients and consult with surgeons, psychologists, economists, and other professionals to detail all the ways that life is adversely affected:
We understand how devastating a scarring injury can be, particularly for children or young adults who may be teased or socially ostracized. We are committed to securing the best possible medical treatment and mental health care for clients, and to making sure that they are fairly compensated for permanent disfigurement.
