A scar is a physical injury that can affect you emotionally. You may feel that people respond to you differently because of your appearance, and as a result you can feel isolated, embarrassed and fearful of public situations.
At Antin, Ehrlich & Epstein, LLP, our personal injury lawyers understand the issues you are facing. We have more than 75 years of combined experience representing accident victims in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens and Staten Island as well as Greater New York. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case and answer your questions.
Helping You Explore Your Options Following An Injury
Scars are a natural effect of the way our bodies heal. Since everyone heals differently, you may not know what your scar will look like for months after your injury. For this reason, you should never accept a settlement until your body heals. There are ways to minimize scars such as chemical peels, laser surgery and scar revision surgery. However, some health plans view scar revision as a cosmetic procedure and will not cover it.
The time to seek the compensation you will need to pay for future surgeries is now. If you settle your personal injury case for too little money, you may regret that decision every time you look in a mirror. Our NYC personal injury law firm will work with medical experts to ensure that you obtain enough money to pay for future treatment and compensate you for your emotional distress. If your child has suffered a scar injury, our attorneys can help you set up a trust fund to pay for the child’s future treatment, as doctors typically will not perform scar revision surgery until the child is grown.
