Catastrophic Injuries Los Angeles / Practice / Los Angeles Laceration Injury Lawyer

Los Angeles Laceration Injury Attorney


A laceration is a cut or tears in the skin. Sometimes it can be a catastrophic injury, and other times it heals with few medical complications. Piercings and punctures are similar to lacerations, but usually involve clamping down on a body part, with deeper penetration into the body.

Hello. I am Los Angeles catastrophic laceration and piercings lawyer, Michael Ehline. I have been a personal injury legal expert for over 16 years. I have drafted federal consumer safety litigation and lobbied the U.S. Congress on behalf of consumers. Presently, I help all types of personal injury victims recover compensation for California personal injuries.

Were you trapped in a fuming, smoldering passenger bus in Los Angeles? Call us now at (213) 596-9642.

And as weird as it sounds, overexertion, cutting, and piercing are common injuries faced by people in L.A. When you think about it, just living and commuting in the city lends itself to these types of injuries. An overexerted biker can be thrown and impaled on a fixed or moving object.

For example, all manner of objects like metal poles, glass shards, and barriers. But of course, piercings can be done at a tattoo parlor, or they can be due to assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. In fact, a piercing of the skin due to a dog attack raises questions of strict liability.

You can probably imagine in your head all the ways your body could be cut open and penetrated by twisted metal, a sharp corner, or canine fangs sinking into your ankle as you run away in fear.

Our world-famous laceration injury lawyers in Los Angeles are available 24-7 to tale calls and discuss the facts of all new cases with all new clients.

Various features may cause or contribute to this condition and the victim’s agony. Items such as broken glass, debris from a slip and fall, or nails or teeth can rip skin apart and cause nerve damage.

But blunt force trauma seen during a rollover crash remains just as damaging or deadly. So laceration and overexertion injuries range from minor to fatal. It’s almost enough to cause you or a loved one your sanity.

General Information About Cuts, Wounds, and Lacerations.

Skin injuries remain the main cause of lacerations. It happens if the skin is split open or separated. Many times this is a jagged cut. These are particularly dangerous, mainly when caused by blunt force trauma, such as in a car crash.

The Severity and Location of the Wound

Such a gash or laceration can take place anywhere on the body. These are external, and there are some common places where they most often occur, including the face, arms, and legs.

A deep laceration can be especially serious if there is damage to the muscle or bone. When the laceration is on the face, it can require extensive treatment to avoid disfigurement.

Symptoms of Serious Cut or Puncture Wound

Lacerations are among the most apparent injuries a body can sustain and can include the following symptoms:

  • Pain is the most common;
  • Fainting from loss of blood or head trauma;
  • Exposure of the tissue below the skin, muscle, or bone;
  • Infection can occur from the lacerated area;
  • Disfigurement from the laceration.

Treatment For Cuts, Gashes, Wounds, and Lacerations?

The treatment for a wound such as this will depend on the location. The main factors after that include the depth and size of the injury.

The first treatment for the damage will be to stop the bleeding, and other treatments include:

  • To prevent infection and promote proper healing you must clean the wound;
  • Topical medications, ointments, and injections may help numb the pain;
  • A tetanus shot helps prevent lockjaw;
  • Some wounds require stitches, glue, or tape. Almost all of them must become immobilized if needed;
  • Facial injuries often require specialized treatment to avoid disfigurement;
  • There will be topical medications, bandages, or dressing maintenance.

The Complications That Can Occur With Lacerations:

These injuries need immediate medical care to heal properly. So professional treatment is critical in avoiding major blood loss or infection. Scarring or debilitation can also be a significant issue when victims open a claim and self-represent.

Other issues can include:

  • Continued pain when not treated properly;
  • Weakness, fainting from loss of blood;
  • Infection, including other symptoms like fever, redness, swelling, and pus or drainage;
  • Scarring, possibly including keloids;
  • Infection, possibly leading to death;
  • Death from loss of blood.
