What is Disfigurement?

by Dixon Law Office

Motorcycle_accident_in_Kendal_ManchesterSome of the legal terms encountered in personal injury cases can be confusing, unusual or misunderstood. In today's post, we discuss disfigurement.

Disfigurement is any injury that causes the injured victim to look differently than they did before the injury.  Disfigurement is usually thought of as scars. For example, a woman who is attacked by a vicious dog might be left with scars on her hands, arms, or face.  Those scars are disfiguring and she is entitled to compensation for them.

But disfigurement is not just scars.  If you were injured in a motorcycle accident and suffered a broken arm that had to be casted, that cast is disfiguring.  If you fell in a parking lot on ice and hurt your back, you might have a limp.  That limp is disfiguring and you are entitled to compensation for it.  Anything that changes your appearance “ whether temporary or permanent “ is disfigurement.  The law says you are entitled to compensation for that disfigurement.

Experienced personal injury lawyers know this.  At Dixon Law Office, we have the experience to get you the compensation you deserve for your disfiguring injury, for your disfigurement.  Call 888-354-9880 and speak with a lawyer at Dixon Law Office a review of your case for free.  You can also go to this link for a free case review.  You can even email us your photos at
