Scarring & Disfigurement

Personal Injury Attorney

Surgery, mouth injuries, burns, fibromalasia, and road rash injuries all have the potential to cause scarring and disfigurement. You may require expensive therapy or further surgery to repair any harm done to you. As scarring and disfigurement is often very visible, this can have physical, mental, and emotional repercussions.

Before you decide to take action, you should call a personal injury lawyer to discuss your legal options. You may be able to file a personal injury suit to recover compensation for your pain and suffering.

Common Causes of Scarring & Disfigurement

Disfigurement occurs when a person’s appearance is affected due to a scar, burn, change in skin texture, or other serious and visible injury.

Causes of scarring and disfigurement include:

  • Amputations
  • Animal attacks
  • Chemical spills
  • Construction accidents
  • Electrocution
  • Fires
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Road hazards

Many of these accidents can result in injuries that require extensive medical treatment and care. Treatments can include plastic surgery, reconstructive surgery, skin grafts, or surgical removal of the scar tissue. In addition to physical scarring, many accidents can cause severe mental and emotional trauma resulting in depression, anxiety, and other problems.
