Degloving, an injury that occurs when the entire top layers of skin are forcibly separated from the tissue beneath, much like removing a glove. There must be a large amount of force and speed in order for a degloving injury to occur. The injury itself is intensely painful, and it is a difficult medical procedure to correct it. With the guidance of a compassionate Pasadena personal injury attorney from our firm, we may be able to help you through this trying time.
This injury happens most often in situations such as factory accidents and motorcycle crashes. If you were injured in a car or motorcycle accident, you may quickly find that filing your claim with the insurance companies is complex and unnecessarily stressful. If the other driver was uninsured or underinsured, you will face even more obstacles.
Similarly, in many on the job injuries, the employer or owner of the company refuses to take responsibility for the accident, and may, in fact, try to blame you! We believe this is unconscionable. Our team strives to ensure that you are not only compensated for your medical bills, long-term medical care, emotional trauma, and lost income, but also that the process is as painless as possible.
