An injury that causes disfigurement can be far more than skin-deep.
When we deal with clients with lacerations, scars and burns. Often, we deal with clients who are told that their injuries are purely cosmetic and not “serious.” However, as a person who has been disfigured, you probably know that it isn’t that simple.
Scars can have a profound impact on your quality of life because of damaged muscle and other soft-tissue structures, and also because of the social stigma from scarring. Scarring can have an impact on people’s self-esteem, and the way other people view them, and can even impact career options and success. Surgery can sometimes partially fix scarring, but this surgery is not cheap, and often times makeup or expensive creams will be required for the rest of your life.
We care and know about all of the issues described above, and we want to help you with the emotional, physical, and financial effects of your scarring.
Our lawyers understand the impact of disfigurement on your life. Any kind of injury will have a different effect on different individuals, but scars and burns can be particularly tricky to quantify.
Your scar, burn or laceration may be more than just a reminder of your injury. Contact us at 866-384-5886 or fill out our online form to learn more about disfigurement claims. We serve clients in Kingston, Ottawa, Whitby, Carleton Place, Perth and throughout Eastern Ontario.
