Scarring And Disfigurement

Serious lacerations, even with prompt medical care, will often result in permanent scarring which even plastic surgery cannot undo.

Scarring or other forms of disfigurement may often result from auto collisions, dog bites, slip and fall incidents, or other injuries.

Under North Dakota law, when you receive permanent scarring or disfigurement injuries, you are entitled to full and just compensation. We are prepared to assist you in obtaining that compensation.

Types of scars include:

  • Hypertrophic: A common form of scarring caused by an overproduction of collagen. Commonly appear as a red, raised lump of skin.
  • Contracture scars: Often caused by burns, results in a contracting of the skin and impairment of movement. Scarring may be deep and may impact muscle and nerves.
  • Keloid: Another common form of scarring. This is a more serious form of scarring because growth can continue until a large tumorous neoplasm forms.
  • Atrophic: Appears as a pitted, sunken recess of skin. Typically occurs with the loss of fat, muscle and underlying supporting structure.
  • Stretch marks: Can occur as a result of healing injuries, particularly around joins.
