Let us guide you through this painful experience so you can focus on your recovery.

What Is Disfigurement?

We expect our roads to generally be safe as we travel on them. Unfortunately, this is often not the case. The National Safety Council estimates that in the year 2020, there were nearly 5 million motor-vehicle-related injuries.

The vehicles on our city streets and highways travel at high rates of speed. This means that the injuries resulting from a car accident are often serious. In addition to injuries like broken bones and organ damage, disfigurement can also be a result. This occurs when a person’s appearance is severely and permanently harmed.

Disfigurement can take many forms. For example, a person may suffer burns, scarring, amputation, or injuries affecting the face. A car accident victim may also sustain road rash, loss of muscle tissue, or broken bones that do not properly heal.

These types of disfigurement injuries can have other consequences. The victim may develop a negative body image, especially in severe cases. This may be accompanied by depression, humiliation, and embarrassment. Physical disability may also be a result.

These impacts can negatively affect a person’s work performance. They can also be devastating for the victim’s social and personal life. In addition, disfigurement can result in complications. These may include infections, chronic pain, excessive scarring, and loss of range of motion.

Pursuing Compensation

facial disfigurementAfter a serious car accident, it can seem like your entire world has been turned upside down. You may still not even understand what happened during the crash. You may wonder if you are partially at fault.

You need help, and you need it now. It can be an especially distressing experience if you are out of work because of the injury. You should not have to worry about how you are going to pay for your regular living expenses while trying to handle the losses you have sustained.

The process of pursuing compensation after an accident can be difficult to navigate if you’re not a lawyer. It can be lengthy and complicated. There will be an investigation to determine what happened during the crash. The investigation will involve a significant amount of documentation that must be collected and preserved as evidence. This may include police reports, medical records, eyewitness statements, and photos or videos from the scene of the accident.

The compensation to which you may be entitled can include many potential components, such as:

  •     Medical bills
  •     Physical therapy
  •     Prescription medication
  •     Loss of earning capacity
  •     Lost wages
  •     Emotional distress
  •     Pain and suffering
  •     Loss of enjoyment of life

When you choose Hach & Rose, LLP to represent you, you can trust that we will pursue the maximum amount of compensation to which you may be entitled.

Do I Need an Attorney?

An experienced car accident attorney can take over your case and fight for the compensation you deserve. You have enough on your plate right now. Hach & Rose, LLP believes your only job during this time should be to focus on your healing and recovery. We will handle the collection of all the available evidence as we build the strongest case possible for you.

When we pursue compensation for your losses, there may be insurance companies involved. They are known for doing whatever they can to avoid paying out money. This includes using misleading tactics and trying to take advantage of those who were injured in accidents. Insurance companies have teams of lawyers ready to defend them. You should have a legal team, too.

An insurance adjuster from the at-fault party’s insurance company may attempt to speak with you on the phone while they record the conversation. This may seem like a reasonable thing to do, especially if you feel you have nothing to hide. However, they may be trying to get you to make a statement that implies that you shared some of the fault or blame for the crash. Don’t talk to an adjuster without talking to your lawyer first.

Insurance companies are also known for offering settlements that are too low. They are hoping that you will accept such an offer, even though it is unfair. They assume that you may not be familiar with all the components of compensation to which you may be entitled. Hach & Rose, LLP will handle all negotiations in your case. We recognize lowball offers when we see them. In the event that negotiations are unsuccessful, we will be ready to go to trial to fight for compensation for you in court.
