Guelph Car Accidents Causing Lacerations


Car accident can have severe outcomes, often leading to a host of serious injuries, including lacerations. Lacerations can result in substantial health problems and permanent disfigurement. As a result of the injuries they have sustained in a collision, many accident survivors incur substantial financial losses, in addition to physical pain and emotional trauma. If you were involved in a car accident caused by someone else’s negligence and sustained compensable injuries as a result, contact our Guelph car accident lawyers today and receive a free initial consultation. To learn about options that might be available to you, call 1-800-JUSTICE.

Complications From Deep Lacerations

A deep laceration is more than just an unsightly cut. It qualifies as a major bodily injury, and if not treated quickly and properly, it can lead to a long list of complications, some of them life-threatening.

Among the issues we have seen in accident victims with deep lacerations are:

Blood Loss

Blood might just trickle out of a small cut, but it can rapidly leave your body if you suffer a large, deep laceration. Unfortunately, car accident victims in Canada lose their lives every year because they bleed to death before they are able to receive medical care. Accident victims with deep lacerations sometimes lose so much blood they need a transfusion from a donor, particularly if they are anemic or they lack adequate clotting factors.

A deep laceration can impair your mobility while it heals. If you contort your body the wrong way, it can reopen the cut, forcing you to start the healing process over again. For this reason, doctors often recommend that patients stay home and rest, avoiding even light or moderate physical activity when they have suffered severe skin laceration.

Pain

The pain from a deep laceration can be all-consuming, preventing you from getting a good night’s sleep, working, or even enjoying a leisure activity such as reading or watching television.

Scarring and Disfigurement

Long after a deep laceration heals, you may be left with a daily visual reminder of the pain and trauma you went through in your accident. Though the body, including the skin, has a remarkable capacity to heal, a major cut often does not recover without producing visible scar tissue.

Infections

Another danger of a laceration is the possibility of infection, both when the injury occurs and during the healing process. We see people every year who are on the road to recovery but end up back in the hospital because of staph or another infection.

Compensation for Your Deep Laceration Car Accident Injuries

Preszler Injury Lawyers helps accident victims in Guelph take on the responsible party and recover the compensation they deserve. We fight the insurance companies and prevent our clients from being saddled with settlements that do not cover their full damages.

We may be able to help you recover a settlement or award that includes the following damages and more:

Current and Future Medical Bills

Call 1-888-608-2111 for available options or Book a Consultation

If someone else’s negligence led to your injuries, they, not you, should cover any medical costs that you have had to pay out of pocket—as well as any expenses you incur in the future as a result of your injury. That includes the cost of hospital stays, doctor visits, prescription medication, medical devices, physical therapy, rehab, and more.

Lost Wages

If you have had to miss work because of your injury, and you have forfeited pay as a result, we can help you go after the responsible party and their insurance company and get compensated for the income you have not received.

Reduced Earning Capacity

If your injury was so severe that it reduced your ability to earn a living on a long-term basis, we will pursue the responsible party and the insurance company for compensation to make up the difference between what you used to earn and what you earn now.

Pain and Suffering

Just because you cannot assign a dollar value to pain and suffering does not mean you do not deserve to receive compensation for it. A deep laceration is one of the most painful injuries you can receive, and it often leaves you with a visual daily reminder of what you went through. Preszler Injury Lawyers may be able to help you receive compensation for what you have had to endure.
