In many scenarios, traumatic brain and spinal injuries frequently result in scarring or disfigurement. Visible scars can cause victims to be self-conscious about their appearance, regardless of its size. Frequently, cases involving disfigurement prevents victims from being able to work. Cosmetic surgery may also be needed depending on how severe the injury is.
Accidents that cause scarring and disfigurement both have one thing in common: they alter a victim’s life permanently. Disfigurement even causes more damage to young adults; which can prevent victims from having confidence. However, most victims are faced with stress and emotional damage.
