San Diego Scarring Lawyers
One of the most common side effects or consequences of an injury or accident is permanent scarring. Most people are likely to have at least one minor scar from a scraped knee or from stitches. However, if the injury was severe enough, or if there were complications while a wound was healing, a scar may be large and disfiguring. Scars not only leave a mark your body, which can be painful, but it may also cause psychological or self-esteem problems.
If you or someone you know has developed a disfiguring scar because of someone else’s negligent actions, you may be eligible for financial compensation to address related medical expenses and other damages.

Side Effects of Scarring
Scarring can be the result of many different injuries. Compound fractures can cause scarring, as can any injury that requires surgery, severe lacerations, or burns. Scars can cause a lifetime of problems including:
- Permanent disfigurement
- Limited mobility
- Long-term disabilities
Some scars can interfere with an individual’s ability to work in his or her chosen profession. This is especially likely if the scarring is disfiguring and the person’s job require a particular aesthetic appearance, or if the impairment of mobility prevents a worker from performing necessary tasks. Do not allow another party to avoid responsibility for the harm that they have caused you.
