Part of the aftermath of any serious personal injury that needs to be considered and accounted for when determining what level of compensation is appropriate is scarring and disfigurement. Serious injuries often leave visible evidence of having occurred.
Scarring and disfigurement can have a major impact on a person’s life. While the original injury may have healed, scarring and disfigurement can create a number of other issues such as:
- Deterioration of physical health — Burn injuries, for example, can leave people with thin, inflexible skin that may be prone to tearing.
- Emotional health — The impact of having to live with scarring or disfigurement can take an emotional toll.
When Scarring And Disfigurement Happen To A Child
When scarring or disfigurement happens to a child, the emotional impact can be extremely powerful. A child being forced to grow up with serious scarring or disfigurement may develop self esteem issues that can shape his or her life going forward. Those issues need to be dealt with and accounted for.
