NYC Tractor-Trailer Accident Recovery
Facial trauma causes particularly difficult physical and emotional challenges. Injuries can affect your ability to talk, eat, taste, smell, breathe, see and hear. In addition, permanent scars and disfigurement can interfere with your sense of identity and confidence and lead to serious psychological injuries.
Schwartzapfel Lawyers P.C. is exclusively committed to personal injury and wrongful death recovery. Our law firm has over three decades of experience assisting motorists and pedestrians who have suffered devastating facial injuries in truck and car crashes. To our lawyers and staff, our work means so much more than just a job, but rather we consider personal injury recovery our mission in life.
We recognize the difficulties you are experiencing and demonstrate compassion and respect throughout the legal process. Our goal is twofold, to get you the most money for your injuries while reducing your stress as much as possible.
Common Facial Injuries
Motor vehicle accidents are one of the most common causes of facial trauma. Hitting your face on the dashboard or other hard object may cause blunt force trauma resulting in broken bones, cuts, puncture wounds and joint dislocation. You may also suffer from burns from the airbags or if the truck catches fire. Injuries may occur to the jaw, teeth, mouth, nose, eyes, ears and skin of your face. As a result, you are likely to experience severe pain and interference with normal functions, such as talking, eating, breathing and seeing, depending upon which area of the face was injured.
Recovery for Your Injuries
Treatments for facial injuries are focused on improving functionality and appearance. Multiple surgeries may be required. Plastic surgery is common to minimize scarring and to repair bone structure, nerves, muscles and other soft tissues. Skin grafts and implants are used to replace destroyed tissue.
Even after extensive treatments, your face may remain permanently disfigured and scarred and you may never fully regain functionality. Complications may include paralysis, loss of sensation and loss of senses.
Clearly, these are necessary treatments, but your insurance company may nonetheless delay and deny your claim. Insurance companies exist to make profits for its shareholders. Every penny they don’t pay out in claims benefits the insurance company. We fight to get you the money you need for immediate, crucial treatments and to compensate you for the pain, disfigurement and suffering you have and will likely continue to endure.
Psychological Injuries Resulting from Facial Trauma
Even a relatively light scar can lead to psychological difficulties that require therapy. Many of our clients have experienced depression, anxiety, self-consciousness, feelings of diminished self-worth, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and social retreat and isolation.
Proving Facial Injuries Damages
