Disfigurement in Car Accidents

Motor vehicle accidents can cause serious injuries to victims. Many of these injuries can be treated and the victim may return to their former lives after some recovery time. However, some auto accident victims never fully heal from their injuries and those injuries may affect them for the rest of their lives. Car accidents can unfortunately cause permanent disfigurements, scarring, and other disabilities. Victims who suffer such permanent conditions deserve to receive full compensation for the life-long effects those conditions may have. If you have suffered any type of disfigurement in an accident, do not hesitate to call a Coweta County auto accident attorney to discuss how you can receive reimbursement from the responsible party.

Some common disfigurements that accident victims may suffer include:

  • Burns
  • Scarring
  • Amputations
  • Limps or other loss of physical mobility

Many people tout the belief that it is what is on a person’s inside that counts, not the outside. Though an injured person’s outward appearance may change, they remain the same person internally. However, this does not mean they will be treated the same way by others, especially strangers. A permanent disfigurement may affect the way an accident victim is treated in social situations, by potential employers or clients, by romantic partners, and more. A permanently disfigured auto accident victim deserves to recover for all of their future struggles.
