Some Scars Never Fade
A serious personal injury may leave you with a permanent disfigurement or disability. A dog bite or burn injury, for example, can cause facial scars that no amount of plastic surgery can correct. At Schmidt, Sethi & Akmajian, our Tucson personal injury attorneys not only work to see that you are adequately compensated for permanent disfigurement and scarring. We can connect you with resources and support groups that offer help and assistance.
Psychological as Well as Physical Scars
We recognize that accidents that cause permanent scarring, amputation or disfigurement cause emotional and psychological injuries as well as physical ones. Injury victims may suffer from depression, anxiety or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Our lawyers take a holistic approach to helping right the wrongs done to you. We will file an injury claim and pursue the maximum possible amount of financial compensation for your physical injuries as well as for current and future psychological injuries. We also give you the resources and information you'll need to help take control of your future, as much as possible.
Repairing the Damage Done to You
Scarring and disfigurement can be caused by broken or crushed bones, deep cuts or lacerations, burns or amputation. Multiple surgeries may be required, including:
- Plastic surgery
- Reconstructive surgery
- Skin grafts
- Surgical removal of scar tissue build-up
We work with respected medical experts and life care planners to determine the extent of your current and future medical needs. Throughout the process, you can rely on us for personal, compassionate client service. We'll keep you up to date on the progress of your case and will also check in occasionally just to see how you are doing.
