There are few injuries more devastating than those that permanently distort or damage our appearance. Disfiguring injuries to the face, neck, and other often-visible parts of the body are the worst, because not only do they cause physical and psychological pain, but they also change how others see us, and how we are accepted by our families, friends, coworkers, and the rest of society.
Injuries that result in disfigurement and scarring have a number of causes, including:
- Vehicle accidents
- House fires and car fires
- Dog and animal attacks
- Accidents while at work or on construction sites
- Industrial accidents
- Fuel and gas explosions
- Exposure to caustic chemicals
- Infections and other consequences of medical negligence
Just the physical repercussions can be severe and long-lasting, leaving victims with nerve damage, chronic pain, difficulties in feeding oneself, and blindness and damage to other senses.
On a financial level, scarring and disfiguring injuries are perhaps the most costly, due to:
- The cost of immediate medical care
- Cost of physical rehabilitation
- Multiple, extremely expensive rounds of skin grafts, plastic surgery, and reconstructive surgery
- Loss of work hours and potentially permanent inability to work
- The cost of purchasing new furniture, vehicles, or even homes needed in order to adapt to the victim’s functionality
