Continuing from Personal Injury Lawsuits: Compensation for Scarring and Disfigurement (Part 1), the following is some additional information regarding personal injury lawsuits that involve claims of scarring and/or disfigurement. While Part 1 of this blog focused on how scarring and disfigurement injuries are caused, as well as specific types of scarring and disfigurement injuries, here in Part 2, we will concentrate on the specific factors that play a role in determining the amount of compensation for these cases.
When a person suffers from scarring or disfigurement, he may be entitled to compensation for his medical bills, mental anguish and permanent injuries by following through with a personal injury lawsuit. For those who choose to pursue compensation for their injuries and losses, the amount of their settlement will depend on a number of factors, including:
- The area of the body affected by the scarring or disfigurement
- The severity or extent of the scarring or disfigurement
- Whether the scarring or disfigurement impairs their ability to earn a living
- Whether the scarring or disfigurement will be a source of future embarrassment
- The degree to which the scarring or disfigurement will negatively impact their quality of life.
