A laceration injury refers to a skin wound which can be a cut, jagged, or torn injury resulting in the separation of skin and its connective tissue. A laceration differs from an abrasion type injury in that skin is not missing but rather separated. There are a number of different terms that can be used to describe or categorize a laceration injury, these include:
- Laceration: this term is often used to describe an injury which causes a jagged or torn wound.
- Cut: this term can be used to describe lacerations that are caused by a sharp tool that can be deep and smooth.
- Gash: this term is used when referring to a laceration which is deep and long.
- Avulsion: this term is used to describe a laceration that results in a wound where the skin is torn away from the body in addition to being separated.
Lacerations can be caused by tools, glass, razors, knives, and any other sharp object. Lacerations usually involve blunt force trauma to your body with an object causing the injury. Common situations that may result in laceration injuries:
- Workplace incidents
- Motor vehicle collisions
- Slip & falls
- Pedestrian related incidents
- Dog attacks
- Machinery incidents
Oftentimes, individuals who suffer such traumatic laceration injuries are rightly focused on their healing and recovery and may not immediately realize their injury was a direct result of someone's negligence. However, the first step of filing a personal injury claim, and receiving the compensation you need and deserve, is figuring out who is liable for your injuries. These are just a few examples of incidents that may have arisen as a result of an individual or company's negligence.
- In cases involving workplace incidents, your employer may be liable for your injuries.
- Motor vehicle collisions caused by drivers that impact another vehicle, pedestrians, or bicyclists can give rise to liability of the driver.
- Incidents caused by machines when being used according to instructions can result in the manufacturers of that product being held liable for your injuries.
- Injuries sustained from bites or attacks from an animal can give rise to liability against the animal's owner.
