It’s important that you read this if you need a plastic surgeon because of a car accident
This client was getting out of her boyfriend’s car in Queens. Being a gentleman, he opened the door for her but accidentally let go too quickly and the car door hit her in the face. Her plastic surgeon wanted $8,000 upfront and her first lawyer couldn’t get the plastic surgeon to agree to get paid by no-fault to surgically repair the scar, but we did. Then we settled the case for the entire insurance policy limit of $50,000. Although it’s worth much more, $50,000 was the limit of her boyfriend’s insurance policy and she did not want to sue him.
The scar in this photo plus a small scar on his leg (among other previous scars) was settled for $25,000.
We settled another claim for a scar on the inside of a woman’s lip (similar to the scar in the photo above) for $16,000 for a client who had a car accident in Nassau County. The scar was so small it didn’t show up on a photo!
The injury in the 2 photos below was caused in a hair salon when the woman cutting his hair accidentally snipped his ear. They put a bandage on it and told him it was nothing. When he went home, his mother took him to a plastic surgeon. They learned it was a more serious injury and required surgery to prevent a scar. He didn’t have health insurance and we got the plastic surgeon to agree to get paid at the end of the case. The insurance company offered $8,000 and after a meeting wouldn’t offer more than $10,000. We arbitrated the case and was awarded $25,000.
Immediately after plastic surgery but before it healed with a tiny scar
This photo shows a scar across a man’s forearm from a motorcycle accident in Suffolk County. We settled the case for $150,000
Extremely Serious Scars
This photo shows one of our clients with serious second degree burns on his leg from a motorcycle accident in Queens. GEICO told us the car was insured for $100,000 but we found a second insurance policy also with GEICO also in the amount of $100,000. The burns resulted in scarring worth more than the $200,000 insurance.
