Lacerations Often Result In Infection And Scarring

Lacerations are caused by blunt trauma and result in uneven tears to the skin. Lacerations can be severe and even life-threatening and common symptoms include pain, bleeding, infection and numbness. More severe cases may involve damage to the tissues, nerves, muscles and tendons. In some cases, these types of injuries are fatal due to blood loss or infection.

Lacerations are commonly suffered by individuals who are involved in car accidents, motorcycle crashes and by pedestrians who are hit by motor vehicles. If you or a loved one suffers a laceration injury, it's important to immediately seek medical care for your injuries as you may need stitches or staples. These types of injuries can also easily become infected and lead to even bigger problems.

Did Negligence Contribute To Your Injury?

If your laceration injury was the result of another person's negligence or intentional act, they can be held legally liable for the costs associated with that injury. If you decide to take legal action to hold a negligent party accountable and to recover compensation, an attorney at Rothchild Law Office will review your medical records, the official accident report, photographic evidence and any other evidence that will support your injury claim.
