Disfigurement and Scarring
Accident victims can often sustain lacerations or burns that are severe enough to cause permanent scars or disfigurement. Such injuries can have a profoundly negative impact on the lives of victims, including untold emotional and psychological pain. Some of the types of accidents that can cause these kinds of injuries include, but are not limited to:
- Auto Accidents
- Construction Accidents
- Dog Attacks
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Product Liability
- Workplace Injuries
When a person is disfigured or suffers permanent scarring because of an accident, he or she could require extensive reconstructive surgeries as well as mental health therapy. Victims could also experience chronic pain and nerve damage, but certain scarring or disfigurement injuries could also impact a person’s ability to return to work.
When the accidents that cause these types of injuries were caused by the negligence of other parties, then the victims can be entitled to compensation. Negligent parties may be liable to disfigured or scarred people for the reckless or careless actions that caused the injuries.
While victims could file lawsuits to collect damages in these types of cases, insurance companies that represent the negligent parties will aggressively challenge such injury claims. Because many scarring and disfigurement cases rely heavily on noneconomic damages that are not easily to quantify, such as pain and suffering or mental anguish, attorneys for these insurance companies will essentially claim that any amount is excessive. Victims have to fight to obtain ant sort of compensation in these cases, and any settlement that is offered by an insurance company is usually inadequate.
