Serious accidents can cause permanent scarring and disfigurement. At the Las Vegas offices of Benson and Bingham, our attorneys assist clients who have suffered disfigurement injuries caused by the negligence and misconduct of others.
Common accidents that cause disfigurement and amputations are:
In disfigurement cases, the physical and emotional scarring can be extensive. Having to live with such a severe injury can lead to depression, lack of motivation, and – possibly – complete withdrawal from society. The recovery process from this type of injury takes a large amount of time— many months of reconstructive surgery and years of physical training. The losses sustained by a disfigurement victim are enormous, and that is why we want to help you.
Liability for personal injuries can be counter-intuitive. Many times, people who have grounds for a civil suit do not come forward because they mistakenly believe they are to blame for their own injuries. In general, however, liability is a function of the "foreseeability of an occurrence." Even if your injuries were due – in part – to the risks taken by you, an employer, a property owner, or a business, can be held liable. Whether or not a person believes to be at fault is – many times – irrelevant to the legal issues of liability.
