Scarring & Disfigurement

The Lawyers You Need & Deserve

Birth Injury
$12.0 Million
A mother was given excessive Pitocin during labor which caused brain damage to her newborn child. Shortly after filing the lawsuit, the hospital and doctor offered $12 million to settle the case.

Birth Injury
$10.0 Million
A routine ultrasound taken just prior to her due date showed that the twins were in fetal distress and emergency procedures needed to be undertaken.

The hospital and doctor settled the case for $10 million.

Carpenter was installing panels at a local job site and fell from a hydraulic lift resulting in serious injuries.
Emergency Room Error
$8.0 Million

$7.0 Million
A young girl was injured in a collision when her mother had to swerve in order to avoid a Pace Van. The mother of an 18-month-old who sustained a lacerated liver after a medical-transportation van allegedly cut off the mother’s minivan and caused it to crash has settled her lawsuit for $7 million.

Chicago Scarring and Disfigurement Attorneys

Part of the aftermath of any serious personal injury that needs to be considered and accounted for when determining what level of compensation is appropriate is scarring and disfigurement. Serious injuries often leave visible evidence of having occurred.

Scarring and disfigurement can have a major impact on a person’s life. While the original injury may have healed, scarring and disfigurement can create a number of other issues such as:

  • Deterioration of physical health — Burn injuries, for example, can leave people with thin, inflexible skin that may be prone to tearing.
  • Emotional health — The impact of having to live with scarring or disfigurement can take an emotional toll.

When Scarring and Disfigurement Happen to a Child

When scarring or disfigurement happens to a child, the emotional impact can be extremely powerful. A child being forced to grow up with serious scarring or disfigurement may develop self esteem issues that can shape his or her life going forward. Those issues need to be dealt with and accounted for.
