Severe Laceration Injuries
Lacerations can be caused a variety of ways, including motor vehicle accidents, defective products, dog bites, and unsafe work environments. Severe laceration injuries refer to deep and/or wide cuts that penetrate nerves and muscle tissue. Complications of severe lacerations may include:
- Blood Loss
When lacerations pierce arteries, the massive blood loss that results can lead to comas, organ failure, and death.
- Brain Injuries
Head lacerations may cause blood to rush to or from the brain — which can cause permanent brain damage.
The skin is an organ that functions to protect the body from harmful bacteria—and if not properly cared for—deep wounds can expose victims to serious infections.
- Noticeable Scarring
Deep cuts can severely damage the skin, causing significant and disfiguring scarring, which can result in reduced self-esteem and depression.
- Loss of Limbs
Arms and legs can be lost when severe lacerations cause reduced blood flow to limbs.
At Ponce Law, our laceration attorneys can’t heal the wounds that result from laceration injuries. But we can help protect your rights to full compensation after your accident so you can focus on your recovery.
How Much is My Laceration Injury Lawsuit Worth?
The amount of compensation available to laceration injury victims depends on several factors.
- Medical Expenses
When your injury isn’t your fault, the at-fault party’s insurance is responsible for covering the medical bills resulting from your injury, which may include stitches, transfusions, antibiotics, and follow-up care.
- Lost Wages
When your injuries leave you temporarily or permanently unable to work, or if you are required to miss work during your treatment, your compensation should include any wages you would have earned had you been uninjured and able to work.
- Physical Pain and Suffering
This is an example of “non-economic damages”. Injury victims are often able to receive compensation for the suffering their injury caused them in addition to reimbursement for their medical expenses.
- Emotional Distress
When you suffer anxiety, depression, humiliation, or other emotional distress after suffering an injury caused by another person’s or party’s negligence that may have caused permanent disfigurement, they can be held liable and may owe you damages.
How Much Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Cost?
You pay nothing out of pocket when you hire a personal injury attorney from Ponce Law. Just like we believe no one should need to pay out of pocket for their injury-related expenses after an accident that wasn’t their fault, we believe no innocent injury victim should have to go without legal representation to fight for the compensation they deserve because they can’t afford it.
The laceration injury attorneys at our firm are paid on a contingency fee basis, which means their fee is included in your winnings, and they only get paid if they win you money. Even your consultation is free.
