Imagine going through life with the marks of someone’s careless driving on your face for everyone to see.
This is what happened to Michelle. When she was only 6 years old, she was the victim of a horrible Michigan car accident, caused by a careless driver who lost control of his automobile and smashed into another car. Michelle was an innocent passenger in one of the vehicles.
In the Michigan auto accident, she suffered serious injuries to her face, including deep cuts in her eyelids, nose and scalp, as well as fractures to delicate facial bones. Doctors did surgery to close the wounds and put the bones back into alignment, but they could not erase the damage.
Now, Michelle’s face is covered with scars. When she grows up, she could have more plastic surgery. However, her doctors say that nothing will completely remove the scars caused by this Michigan auto accident.
Not surprisingly, this child has lot of trouble adjusting to the scars on her face, and it could get worse as she enters adolescence. Although most teenage girls become self-conscious about their appearance, the lasting scars of the Michigan car accident are an extraordinary burden for Michelle.
No child should have to experience the trauma of a serious Michigan auto accident. But in this case, Michelle has to remember that terrible car crash every time she looks in the mirror.
At the Law Offices of Sam Bernstein, our experienced Michigan car accident attorneys worked very hard to protect Michelle’s legal rights to compensation for her severe and lasting physical and emotional injuries. She is a special little girl who deserves all the help she can get, for better times ahead.
