Lacerations, Burns and Scarring
An experienced Ottawa injury lawyer knows that the true effects of lacerations aren’t always visible.
Deep cut injuries often occur when speed and force is a factor. In addition to broken bones, motor vehicle accidents commonly cause facial lacerations from broken shards of glass, which can remain embedded in the skin and lead to infection and long-term or permanent scarring. Yet, the damage caused by scarring isn’t purely physical: people often experience profound emotional distress and psychological neuroses including anxiety and depression. They can feel increasingly self-conscious about leaving home and engaging with others.
A burn injury may never fully heal and our Ottawa injury lawyers understand how devastating this can be.
Everyone is entitled to a safe environment but inevitably accidents happen. Fire, chemicals, radiation, malfunctioning equipment, electrical shock, and contact with hot surfaces, water and steam are frequently responsible for on-the-job burns and scarring. Serious accidents don’t only occur in the workplace. Many people don’t expect to be injured in their own home, but faulty electronics or wiring can cause electrical shock, and everyday appliances can overheat or cause fire and result in severe burns or disfiguring scars. Car accidents are also one of the main causes of serious burn injuries. Our Ottawa injury lawyers understand that these injuries may never heal fully and we know how devastating this can be. We can help you meet with the top medical professionals in this field and ensure that you get the support, treatments and compensation you need.
