When you’ve been the victim of an accident in Los Angeles that results in disfigurement and/or scarring you are constantly reminded of the horrific experience each time you look in the mirror or someone gives you an awkward glance. Even though the accident happened in the past, it seems like every day you have to relive it. It doesn’t have to be this way.
Disfigurement and scarring can occur as a result of many types of accidents in Los Angeles, including:
- Vehicular accidents
- Violent attacks

The Dominguez Firm has experienced and skillful disfigurement and scarring lawyers that are compassionate and understand the challenge of having to live with scars or disfigurement after an accident. We have over 30 years of experience handling disfigurement and scarring injuries here in Greater Los Angeles. We have the reputation and resources to not only fight for you on your legal case, but also to ensure you get to the best doctors so you can mitigate or avoid disfigurement and scarring.
In many instances, disfigurement and scarring can be lessened, reduced or avoided, if proper measures are taken close in time to the initial injuries. This usually entails a coordinated effort between your team of doctors and a plastic surgeon. Also, if your scar has already “set,” advances in scar revision procedures may be able to lessen its appearance.
It is also very important to know that when someone’s negligence or wrongdoing causes you to be disfigured or scarred, whether it’s a scar on your face, an amputated limb, or anything in between, you are entitled to recover for the emotional and psychological toll in addition to your physical harm. Even more, you can seek compensation for future procedures that are deemed necessary, since disfigurement and scars tend to evolve and worsen over time.
