Scarring After an Accident

After an accident, victims may sustain injuries that result in unsightly scars as they heal. Depending on the size and depth of your wound – as well as various other circumstances – it may take long to heal and can develop into a noticeable scar. Scars can range from very minor to disfiguring, so treatment options vary greatly. When patients require surgical procedures to treat a scar, it can be very expensive. However, with the help of a personal injury lawyer in Dallas, you may be able to have you medical expenses covered after your accident.

Types of Scars

As your skin begins to recover from damage following an accident, it can result in any of the following types of scars, depending on the amount of collagen that your body produces during the healing process:

  • Flat scars (most common)
  • Hypertrophic scars
  • Atrophic scars
  • Keloid scars
  • Scar contractures (burn injuries)

While scars may never disappear altogether, there are ways you can minimize them so you are more confident in your physical appearance.
