What is Disfigurement?
Disfigurement is a condition in which a person’s appearance is substantially altered. This may be in the form of:
- Anatomical deviations
Usually, the most difficult to deal with are mutilations in the hands, arms, neck, and face.
Effects on Daily Life
Since disfigurement often leads to severe psychosocial problems, we will help you obtain compensation for the negative effects you may be experiencing, such as:
- Negative thoughts about your body
- Intolerance from others
- Difficulty in personal life
- Difficulty in sexual life
- Difficulty in work environment
This type of injury may be caused by:
- a disease that infiltrated the skin, muscle, and/or bone
- an anatomical or genetic birth defect
- 2nd and 3rd degree burns
- a beauty salon scarring accident
- a severe injury caused by a weapon (gun, knife, etc.)
- a pedestrian accident
- a bicycle accident
- medical malpractice
- a car accident
The disfigured area may possibly be treated surgically; however, surgery is still limited based on how well your injury can be repaired. Ultimately, treatment must approach a point in which you are satisfied with the outcome. Additionally, it should be a vital goal for you to accept yourself and the changes; if necessary, this goal can be achieved with the help of counseling.
