Scars & Disfigurement
Scarring or a facial disfigurement can cause intense psychological pain. Though as a society we may not want to admit it, in some cases these injuries can reduce a person’s earning potential to a significant degree.
When a scar or disfiguring injury was caused by negligence or an intentional act, the injured person can claim compensation for the costs of reparative and cosmetic surgery, lost income, physical pain and psychological suffering.
