Maximizing Recovery In Injury Lawsuits After Scarring Or Disfigurement
Our civil justice system is structured to help individuals obtain the money they need to get their life back together after someone has injured them. A settlement or verdict from a personal injury lawsuit will help pay for medical expenses and lost wages, and compensate injured parties for their pain and suffering. Unfortunately, some accidents leave scars that won’t go away.
At Mayer & Associates, P.C., our Kansas City personal injury lawyer will seek full compensation for all of the damages that someone suffers in an accident, including scars and disfigurement. This may occur in a motor vehicle accident or an accident that occurs at work.
We offer a free consultation to discuss your case. Please call 816-692-2877 to discuss your injury with a lawyer at our firm.
Obtaining Money For Future Needs
Until your injuries heal, you will not know how visible any scars will be or how much they can be minimized through plastic surgery. For this reason, it’s important not to resolve your case until you speak with an experienced Kansas City personal injury attorney. Attorney Stephen C. Mayer brings more than 25 years of experience to every case.
Our goal as your attorney is to recover enough compensation to meet your needs both now and in the future. That may include money to pay for future surgery. You may also need psychological counseling to help you cope with scars that will remain visible even after surgery. Children especially can be traumatized by a scar in a visible area of their body. Your child may have to live with disfigurement for several years since doctors may wait until your child is fully grown to perform surgery.
You should never accept an insurance company settlement if you are unsure of how the injury will affect you in the future. Once you accept a settlement, your case is over. You will not be able to go back to the insurance company later and demand more compensation.
