I suffered extensive injuries to my face after a Boca Raton car accident. I am left with quite a bit of facial scarring. Who pays for the plastic surgery expenses for facial scars resulting from a Florida car accident injury?

A:

When a Boca Raton car accident causes a significant injury to the face, the healing process can leave scars. Lauren Bacall said, "I think your whole life shows in your face and you should be proud of that." But it can be hard to deal with the world when your face shows a record of the accident. It can be even more difficult when scarring affects the movement of the facial muscles. Many Florida accident victims opt to have facial scars removed or minimized through plastic surgery.

Plastic surgery to remove facial scarring can be very expensive. Most Boca Raton accident victims simply cannot afford the expense on their own. However, that does not mean that you have to live with your scars.

Under Florida car crash law, car accident victims can claim past and future medical expenses in a Florida accident injury claim.  These expenses may include plastic surgery to improve or minimize scars that result from the car accident.  If you have been injured in a Boca Raton car crash, accident lawyer David Glatthorn can help you estimate the cost of future surgery for scar removal. He can include that cost, as well as your other medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering, in your Florida injury claim.
