While some types of personal injuries – like broken bones or concussions – are treatable and can be resolved with the properly medical attention, in the worst cases, personal injuries result in irreversible damage to a person’s health, physical appearance and mental wellbeing. One such type of permanent personal injury is any injury that results in scarring and/or disfigurement. Some ways in which scarring or disfigurement can occur include through:
- Car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents or other types of traffic accidents
- Use of defective products (including both consumer and medical products)
- Workplace accidents
- Dog bite accidents
- Medical mistakes made by doctors or other medical professionals (such as during surgery)
- Unsafe premises (that, for example, could expose a person to toxic chemicals)
- Slip and fall accidents.
Specific types of scarring and disfigurement injuries that can be sustained from any of these events may include (but are not limited to):
- Facial scarring or disfigurement
- Loss of an eye or ear
- Loss of fingers or toes
- Loss of hands or feet
- Loss of one or more limbs (whether it be partial or complete loss of the limb).
