Degloving Injuries

Degloving Injuries

Information from a Long Beach Personal Injury Lawyer

When someone is injured in such a way that his or her skin is removed from the muscle and tissue below, it is called a degloving injury. In general, non-fatal degloving injuries only affect arms, legs, fingers, and toes. These injuries cause intense pain to the victim and may lead to partial or total disability. Degloving injuries can happen in on the job accidents, or in motorcycle accidents, car accidents or bicycle accidents. Unfortunately, Long Beach has a high rate of car accidents and an even higher rate of motorcycle accidents and bike accidents, so these injuries are not as rare as they should be.

When a degloving injury is caused by negligence, the victim is entitled to compensation for his or her medical bills, long-term medical costs, lost income, and emotional pain. Degloving injuries are incredibly rare, so it is important that you have legal representation who understands the severity of the injury and how it will affect your life as you recover.
