The Impact of Severe Cuts and Lacerations on Your Life

Lacerations and cuts are common consequences of many accidents and acts of violence. The most immediate impact of these injuries is the need to seek medical care to stop bleeding and limit the damage.

This may involve:

  • An ambulance ride from the location of the event,
  • ER care,
  • Surgery, or
  • Rehabilitation or follow-up doctor visits.

Our seasoned Bangor personal injury lawyers can pursue compensation from the people and companies who cause these injuries for your medical care.

However, these events are likely to cause other losses beyond the cost of treatment. 

Many cuts result from traumatic experiences that may cause you to experience nightmares, PTSD, or other forms of emotional trauma. Severe lacerations may also force you to miss time at work while you are recovering.

The healing process can result in scarring that reminds you of the traumatic event and changes your physical appearance.

Although a claim for compensation cannot reverse the damage done, the Bangor attorneys at Mann Law can help pursue the resources you need to ease your life moving forward.

Liability for Laceration Accidents

There is no doubt that cuts and lacerations can have a significant impact on every part of your life.

However, you can only collect compensation from another party if you and your attorney can show they were responsible for the accident that caused your lacerations.

Perhaps the most common sources of cuts in Bangor are car crashes. An experienced lawyer at our firm can help hold negligent drivers accountable for cuts and lacerations suffered in traffic collisions.

Other examples of incidents that may allow you to pursue compensation include the following:

  • Slips and falls,
  • Truck accidents,
  • Defective products that cause injuries,
  • Dog bites, and
  • Bicycle or pedestrian accidents.

A Bangor cuts & lacerations accident lawyer at Mann Law will work to build powerful cases against at-fault parties that seek appropriate compensation.

    We also work to protect you against allegations of shared blame by insurance companies.

    Partial Negligence for a Severe Cut

    Maine Court Procedure – Civil § 156 says that courts must evaluate the actions of both victims and defendants in accident cases.

    If a court believes that you were partially responsible for an incident, it will reduce your compensation by this percentage.

    If you are found 50% or more at fault, the court cannot award any payments. Allowing an attorney like Christiana Mann to take the lead in your cuts and lacerations accident case could be crucial to protecting your rights.
