Abrasions, Lacerations & Contusions—When Do You Need a Milwaukee Personal Injury Attorney?
At first glance, most people think lawsuits over scrapes, cuts and bruises are just frivolous suits. It’s important to realize we’re not talking about paper cuts here. Anyone who has suffered a serious abrasion (scrape), laceration (cut), or contusion (bruise) can tell you it takes more than a Band-Aid and a get-better kiss.
There are countless ways the negligence or malfeasance of others can cause serious cuts, abrasions and contusions. From lacerations caused by broken glass in an auto accident to patellar contusions (knee bruising) caused by slipping on a wet floor at work, these injuries disrupt lives in significant ways. What’s more, there may be serious underlying problems that remain undiagnosed if the injury is simply dismissed as superficial.
Regardless of how you were injured, it’s important to first get medical attention for a serious abrasion, laceration or contusion. Then, contact the Milwaukee personal injury attorneys of Warshafsky Law. If you have grounds for a lawsuit to recover your medical expenses and time lost from work, we’ll fight to get you the maximum possible compensation under the law.
