The definition of the term “disfigurement” means to impair beauty or alter one’s physical appearance in an unsightly way. In addition to physical pain, victims of disfiguring injuries often suffer from psychological distress, embarrassment, and/or depression.
Victims deserve to be fully-compensated for the damages they’ve suffered, and this can include more than just medical bills. If it can be shown that someone’s negligence caused your injuries, they are liable for making you whole again. Essentially, the goal of a personal injury claim or lawsuit is to return the victim back to the position he/she would have been in if the injury had not occurred.
While it may not be possible for the victim to fully-recover from certain types of disfiguring injuries (burns, scars, amputations, etc.), an experienced personal injury lawyer can help prove up your damages, draft a demand, and ensure that you’re given the best opportunity to recover every penny you rightfully deserve.
Injuries that often cause disfigurement.
Some injury scenarios are more prone to cause scarring or other forms of disfigurement. Those types of scenarios include (but are not limited to) the following:
There are several treatment options that can be used to lessen the psychological effects of disfigurement, including reconstructive surgery, cosmetic surgery, and prosthesis. While these types of treatment options are usually considered elective in nature, you have every right to seek the compensation necessary to make you whole.
Disfigurement can have serious effects on the victim.
In the early stages of medical care and rehabilitation, the victim may find that treatment can be quite extensive and painful to endure. Additionally, such a catastrophic injury can cause collateral issues which can affect your family’s financial security. For instance, those who have lost a limb may find their ability to work is more difficult—if not impossible (especially those whose career requires intense physical exertion such as construction and other types of manual labor).
If you missed any work while recovering from your injuries, you’re likely owed compensation for lost wages. If your injury prevents you from returning to work in your career field, you may be entitled to seek additional compensation through a diminished earnings capacity claim. After all, it’s not your fault that you’re unable to return to work and provide for your family due to someone else’s negligence.
Determining the potential value of your claim.
It’s important for anyone who has been disfigured in an accident to enlist the services of an experienced personal injury lawyer. It’s important to have someone on your side looking out for your best interests, and someone who has experience assessing all the potential costs (damages) associated with your injuries. The value of your claim will depend upon several factors, including the severity of the injuries; past, current, and future medical costs; loss of income; the defendant’s insurance policy; your relationship with the defendant; and much, much more.
