Disfigurement occurs when an injury impairs or negatively impacts a person’s physical appearance. Scars which are left behind after the accident can also make the skin look different. Disfigurement is usually a permanent impairment. In addition to the physical harm, disfigurement and scarring can have impacts like financial and psychological issues on a victim. Such injuries affect a person’s ability to work, particularly if the injury involves the loss of a limb or limits the mobility of a person, and often requires expensive treatment. The amount of this additional compensation depends on the area of the body disfigured and the extent of disfigurement. If you are the victim of an accident that disfigured you in any way, we can review the facts of your injury and advice you on your legal rights to help you pursue a claim.
