A scar or disfigurement can be particularly distressing, especially when it is on the face. In severe cases, it may even affect a person’s earning potential. These effects can cast a dark cloud over the future of an accident victim, even when he or she has fully recovered from other physical injuries.
At Gold, Albanese, Barletti & Locascio L.L.C., we help victims of scarring and disfigurement injuries obtain medical care and compensation. We provide quality legal representation in cases involving motor vehicle accidents, workplace accidents, fires and other acts of negligence.
Obtaining Medical Care and Compensation for Accident Victims
In recent years, several new techniques have been developed to remove or minimize scarring. In addition to scar revision surgery, scar victims may benefit from steroids and laser scar removal techniques. Gold, Albanese, Barletti & Locascio L.L.C., works with leading cosmetic surgeons to learn what is and what is not possible in such cases.
Progressive photos showing how the scar develops over time can help us document your injury. Our lawyers will also work closely with you, to understand the effect your injury has had on your life, your emotions and your livelihood. If you need psychological counseling to deal with your injuries, we will insist that the liable party or parties provide the funds to pay for that care. Our understanding of your physical, financial and emotional state will help us tell your story and prove your case in settlement negotiations or in court. Gold, Albanese, Barletti & Locascio L.L.C., will work with determination to obtain maximum compensation for you.
