Scarring & Disfigurement in a York Injury Claim

York Personal Injury Attorney

When a mark is left on the body after a wound has healed, it is scarred. When someone's appearance is permanently spoiled after an injury or when they are left physically altered and deformed, they are disfigured. While all forms of scarring and disfigurement can change one's outward appearance forever, perhaps the worst types of injuries involve facial disfigurement.

When someone is involved in a serious auto accident, or when they are attacked by a dog, or when their face is severely burned in an explosion or from chemicals, it can result in facial abnormalities and disfigurement.

Causes of Scarring and Disfigurement

We cannot ignore the fact that we live in an appearance-conscious society where even the Hollywood elite are resorting to Botox and plastic surgery to improve their appearance. Unfortunately, facial disfigurement commonly occurs in car accidents, and the emotional and psychological effects can extend far beyond the physical effects. It is a myth that when someone's face is disfigured in a crash that it can be magically fixed by plastic surgery. While reconstruction surgery or sometimes multiple surgeries can certainly help, the victim's face rarely returns to what it was before and the surgeries usually leaves behind new scars.

Victims who live with facial disfigurement from a car or motorcycle accident, from burns, or from a botched plastic surgery frequently endure serious physiological effects. Such victims commonly experience economic problems resulting from lost income and from having to pay exorbitant medical bills from multiple reconstruction surgeries, and the financial effects only increase the person's stress levels.

Representing Individuals throughout York & Lancaster

There is no question that the psychological and emotional effects of scarring and disfigurement can be permanent and life-altering for the accident victim. Victims can experience social isolation, their significant others and close family members can be affected as they have to make major adjustments, and parents of children who suffer disfigurement can have emotions of grief, depression, guilt, anxiety and fear for their child's future.
