North York Lawyer For Lacerations, Scars And Burns

Many accidents result in lacerations, scars and burns. Often accident victims don’t think about trying to get compensation for them, because they assume that if they are not debilitating, they won’t be worth very much.

At Rooz Law, our scars and burn injury lawyers for North York and Toronto know that you may need to take time off from work or hire help to take care of your house, your family and yourself while you recover from lacerations and burns. Your injuries may also have profound and sometimes permanent effects on your life, even after you have supposedly fully healed.

Many people consider scars to be purely cosmetic injuries. However, they can have a severe impact on the people who carry them, particularly if they are disfiguring. Scars that are on normally visible parts of your body may have all sorts of unexpected effects on your life, including:

  • Extreme shyness about other people seeing them
  • Unpleasant emotional reminders of your injury when you see them
  • Influence on how other people — including friends, family and strangers — treat you socially
  • Influence on your ability to get a job or promotion

All of these may lead to depression or post-traumatic stress disorder.

Physical Effects Of Scarring

Some scars may also become puckered and restrict your movement and flexibility, which can affect your ability to take care of your home and family, and possibly even your ability to do your job. You may also suffer from pain, itching and changes in sensitivity due to scar tissue. In extreme cases, this may lead you to require additional surgery and rehabilitation.

Rooz Law can help you figure out what kind of compensation may be appropriate for your lacerations and scars. If necessary, we can also connect you to medical professionals who may be able to treat your scars and burns in order to minimize their effects on your life.
