Disfigurement resulting from an automobile accident can take a terrible toll on your life, affecting everything from your job to your personal relationships. An accident in which you were not at fault can be even more challenging to deal with emotionally and psychologically. Anthony Muharib will do everything we can to help you receive financial compensation for your injuries. Although a financial settlement will not replace what was taken from you, it will help defray stress and worries about paying for long-term care, reconstructive surgery, disability or job loss, and physical therapy.
Types of Disfiguring Injuries
There are several types of disfiguring injuries that can occur as a result of a serious automobile accident, including:
- Loss of a limb or limbs
- Facial scarring
- Nerve damage
- Loss of motor functions
These significant, disfiguring injuries can permanently affect your quality of life and lead to long-term disability or job loss. The financial assistance supplied by a personal injury settlement can make a massive difference in the financial burden your recovery will place on your family.
Treatment for Disfiguring Injuries
Treatment for serious, disfiguring injuries often occurs over a long period. It can take years to recover from some types of disfigurement, and some will require treatment or care for the rest of your life.
Some types of treatment include:
- Reconstructive surgery
- Physical therapy
Any or all of these may be necessary to help you return to normal activities. Because treatment is often long-term, costs can quickly escalate and become unmanageable even with insurance coverage. Anthony Muharib can help evaluate your case to determine what financial compensation you might be entitled to help you defray these often astronomical costs.
