Vehicle accidents, assaults, burns, falls, and workplace accidents are among the many different incidences that can result in permanent scarring and disfigurement. These types of injuries may place a large amount of stress on the victim’s family, as their loved one may require assistance for the rest of their lives, along with ongoing rehabilitation and medical treatment.
Common Types of Permanent Scarring and Disfigurement
- Facial scarring
- Loss of eye(s)
- Severed finger(s)
- Severed toe(s)
- Loss of limb
Causes of Scarring and Permanent Disfigurement Injuries
There can be many causes of scarring and permanent disfigurement, namely:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Toxic exposure
- Defective products
- Work-related injuries
- Intentional harm
If your scarring or permanent disfigurement has been caused by the negligent or intentional act of another or by a dangerous or defective product, you have the legal right to make a personal injury claim to recover money to compensate you and/your family for your losses, which may be very significant.
Over the past ten years, many legislatures throughout the United States have imposed caps on the amount of money you can receive in these types of cases. Arizona has no caps on recoverable damages due to medical bills, permanent disability, loss of current and future wages, loss of enjoyment of life, pain and suffering, and mental anguish.
The Importance of Qualified Legal Representation
Excessive costs accompany scarring and disfigurement in terms of medical bills for surgeries, physical therapy, and medication. The emotional trauma associated with permanent disfiguration can also be very great due to the drastic change in one’s appearance.
