The Consequences of a Degloving Injury

Beyond the suffering one endures when the skin is ripped from one’s body, degloving injuries can have serious long-term effects. A survivor may have to undergo multiple operations to replace their skin and are often left with terrible scars. They may also experience a variety of complications, including infection.

These are some of the ways in which a degloving injury can impact your health:

  • Debilitating illness caused by infection
  • Emotional scarring
  • Aches and pains caused by poor bone healing
  • Numbness
  • Sharp pain as a result of internal organ damage
  • Complete loss of digits or limbs

Degloving injuries can also affect mobility, which means you may need extensive therapy to improve the effects of this injury. As such, many victims incur vast medical bills they may not be able to afford, especially if they cannot return to work as a result of their injury.

Recovering Compensation for Your Degloving Injury

Depending on the cause of your accident, one or more parties may be liable for your injuries. For example, if your degloving injury was caused by a truck accident, many parties may be liable for it, including the driver and the trucking company. If you were operating industrial equipment that was defective, resulting in a degloving injury, the manufacturer may be liable. Your attorney will investigate the details of your case to help determine liability.

Regardless of who was liable for your degloving injury, compensation can cover a wide range of losses, including:

  • Past and future medical expenses, including emergency room visits, surgical procedures, prescription medication, rehabilitative treatment, and more
  • Property damage, such as a totaled car or lost personal items
  • Lost wages and reduced earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life

In cases where a degloving injury results in death, it is possible for certain family members to pursue a wrongful death claim.
