Many types of accidents cause injuries that lead to severe scarring and disfigurement. Serious burns from explosions or fires, road rash after a serious motorcycle accident and many others can all lead to permanent scarring. These scars often serve as daily reminders to victims, forcing them to continually relive the horrific accidents they endured.
For some people, such reminders cause severe depression, and the constant gawking from passersby has the potential to cause significant self-esteem issues. If the accident that caused the initial injuries happened due to another person’s negligence, victims have the right to seek compensation. Compensation for scarring is often negotiated as part of the initial settlement, and it is important to have a lawyer who will fight for a settlement that covers all of your short- and long-term needs.
