The most serious injuries can result in permanent disfigurement. If you have suffered disfigurement as the result of an accident that was caused by someone else's negligence, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit seeking compensation for both physical and psychological injuries.
Hawkins Law Firm in Tulsa works to maximize the compensation that individuals receive in personal injury lawsuits in which the victim has suffered disfigurement. Disfigurement is defined as the permanent and harmful altering of an individual's appearance. It includes scarring, amputation or loss of an eye.
Individuals who suffer disfiguring injuries may require psychological treatment in addition to treatment for the injuries themselves. These injuries can result in depression and other psychological problems. We work with highly regarded psychologists and psychiatrists who can provide insight into your condition and strengthen your case for recovering compensation for psychological pain and suffering.
It is important in these cases to work with an experienced personal injury lawyer who will help you address the issues in a timely fashion while also allowing the diagnoses to play themselves out. A rush to settle on the amount of compensation puts a victim at risk of discovering later that the extent of the injuries — and the cost to treat them — exceeds the amount of an early settlement.
