Proven Louisiana Injury Attorneys for Your Burn or Limb Loss Claim
Every serious injury case is unique, not only in terms of who caused the injury and should be held accountable under the law, but also in the extent of the injuries and overall consequences borne by the victim. The loss of a limb or other body part, as well as burns and lacerations that can leave permanent scarring, may be described for legal purposes as “disfigurement.”
Louisiana laws governing personal injury claims specifically cite the right to recover damages for permanent disfigurement or disability. Disfigurement is also a specific consequence called out in many maritime injury cases requiring action under the Jones Act or other applicable statutes.
