Scars and other disfigurements caused by a motor vehicle accident, defective product, burn injury or medical procedure can be painful both physically and psychologically. In addition to limiting a person’s range of motion, they also serve as a visual reminder of their accidents. Many individuals become depressed after living with scars.

Sarasota Burn and Scar Injury Attorneys
Burn injuries and scarring go hand-in-hand. Fire, steam, hot liquids or an explosion can cause severe disfigurement, including loss of a limb. These types of injuries may be the result of a defective product causing chemical burns, a property owner’s negligence or any other act of negligence. They may also be the result of a motor vehicle accident. Whatever the cause of your injury, our dedicated attorneys will fight to hold the responsible parties accountable.
Helping Scarring Victims Obtain Scar Revision Compensation
There are several kinds of scars that cause disfigurement:
- Keloid scars — caused by the excessive growth of scar tissue over the injured area — are often painful and frequently require scar revision surgery for removal.
- Hypertrophic scars — developed when excess collagen fibers pull tissue across the injured area — may be tender or extremely sensitive and prone to uncomfortable itching.
- Contracture scars — formed following a burn injury — can be the most disfiguring and may limit a victim’s range of motion and require plastic surgery.
Scar revision surgery is designed to reduce the appearance of scars, as well as correct skin changes and disfigurement caused by serious injuries. At Heintz & Becker, we are amazed at the results we have seen skilled surgeons provide for our personal injury clients. The change in demeanor that comes about after scar revision surgery is often dramatic. People regain hope for the future. Our lawyers take pride in helping our clients get the compensation necessary to cover the costs of this expensive surgical treatment.
One of the key features of our service, particularly in cases involving scarring and disfigurement, is the ability to guide people toward good medical treatment. We are not satisfied in just getting you scar revision compensation or other forms of compensation; we want to make certain you get the most for your money by getting you to medical professionals who have built their reputations on treating serious injuries like yours.
