Oftentimes the aftermath of a serious accident includes a scar. We see
this often in automobile accidents, dog bites, motorcycle wrecks and construction
South Carolina provides for compensation for those who face scar damage
after an accident. This compensation can include:
- Expenses for Cosmetic or Corrective Surgery
- Impairment for Nerve Damage Around Scar Area
- Pain and Suffering
- Mental Distress \ Anxiety Caused By Scar
Just like any other type of injury, some scars are more seriuos than others.
Scar injuries are sometimes the most prominent portion of an injury claim,
such as when a young child's face is injured in a dog attack. Other
times the scar injury is incidental to more substantial expenses, such
as after a motorcycle accident resulting in broken bones.
When we encounter a client who is left with a scar after an injury we seek
to add any related legal damages to our client's settlement or Court
verdict. This is done primarily by having the scar evaluated by a physician
who practices in the area of scar repair or cosmetic surgery.
