Princeton NJ Motorcycle Accident Scarring and Disfigurement Attorneys
Personal Injury Lawyers with Offices in Mercer County, New Jersey
Motorcyclists are exposed to the road and the elements. A motorcycle crash often causes the motorcycle rider to make contact with the pavement. As a result, motorcycle accident victims often suffer lacerations, which can lead the long-lasting scars. Additionally, if your skin is burned as the result of a motorcycle accident, you could develop contracture scars. This kind of motorcycle accident injury can cause damage to muscles and nerves. Of course, protective safety gear can go a long way toward protecting motorcyclists against scarring and disfigurement in the event of a motorcycle accident. However, safety equipment does not always protect motorcyclists against scarring. No matter how much protective gear you wear, you will still be vulnerable to lacerations, burns, and road rash.

Medical Treatment for Scarring in Mercer County, NJ
Scarring and disfigurement often requires extensive, and expensive, medical treatment. Reconstructive plastic surgery might be necessary to treat scarring caused by a motorcycle accident. This surgery to rebuild the damaged part of your body is often incredibly painful.
Additionally, the rehabilitation required for full recovery from these kinds of injuries can last years. You may require steroid injections to reduce inflammation after surgery. You might also need expensive pain medication following surgery.
Emotional Damages for Disfigurement Injuries in New Jersey
Disfigurement might not be fatal, but it can take a significant emotional toll on the victim. It is not uncommon for motorcycle accident victims who suffer scarring or disfigurement to lose self-esteem. Permanent scarring or disfigurement can cause psychological and emotional trauma because victims might not feel comfortable going out in public. In the worst cases, you could suffer from anxiety and depression. In fact, many scarring victims become socially isolated because they have feeling of shame about their physical appearance. Depending upon the extent of the emotional distress, it might be necessary to undergo psychological counseling.
Securing Compensation for Motorcycle Accident Scarring in Trenton
Although financial compensation might not seem like it will matter, the reality is that you are going to need a great deal of money to cover the costs of medical treatment and to ensure that you fully recover from your injuries. Insurance companies often fight motorcycle accident claims for damages related to scarring. You will have to fight to secure compensation for scarring because many insurance companies treat the follow-up surgery as unnecessary “cosmetic surgery.” That’s why you need an experienced personal injury attorney on your side.
