How Will I Be Compensated for Disfigurement?

Personal injury cases are complex in that they involve valuing, to some extent, the injuries of the injured party. Those suffering from a permanent or temporary disfigurement have a right to compensation, by the liable party, for the economic costs of their disfigurement, such as medical expenses and lost wages. They also have a right to compensation for their pain and suffering. Pain and suffering is an industry standard term used to denote the non-economic losses the injured party sustained. These can include the actual physical pain from the injury, its treatment and its aftermath, the emotional and psychological trauma from the injury and the overall effect the injury will have on their life now and in the future.

Disfigurement is likely to require follow up treatment down the road, be physically painful and cause some emotional and psychological distress, dependent upon the nature and severity. Disfigurement may also cost the injured party in terms of their social relationships. Again, this is dependent upon the nature and severity of the disfigurement. It is also possible a disfigurement could have economic ramifications as well as it could have an affect upon the injured party’s earning power. For example, if the injured party was left with severe facial scaring and they worked in an image-conscious industry, their disfigurement may pose a barrier to their earning potential. Similarly, a disfigurement could compromise your career if you worked in sales or in some other role where appearances can have a big impact on your work performance.

The extent to which your disfigurement affects your life is a major factor in determining what your compensation will look like. Factors that may come into play in this calculation include what effect your disfigurement has on your activities and hobbies, profession, social life or role as a family member. In Georgia, there is no cap on what you can collect for pain and suffering damages so the amount will vary greatly, depending on the disfigurement. There are many factors to consider before you settle a personal injury claim or case involving disfigurement so it is important to speak with an experienced Georgia personal injury attorney about the nature and extent of your disfigurement to get a better idea of how you will be compensated.

Chris Smith

Tom did an excellent job setting up my LLC for my new business recently. I was in a situation where I needed the LLC formed quickly and Tom and his team were able to work on a very short deadline. Highly recommended!

GAAW Wright

Tom has been our attorney for many years. He has been with us through thick and thin. He has successfully handled all our queries and cases with patience and understanding. We highly recommend Tom!

Corey Rennolds

At all times for the duration of my case, Tom demonstrated professionalism, confidence, and honesty. At no point was I pressured to make any one decision over another, but Tom did his best to inform me about the consequences and benefits of all of my options. If he did not know some specific detail regarding my case, he made the effort to find out. Tom instantly exudes trustworthiness and was always in steady contact. I would recommend his services to anyone.

Justina Allen

I met Tom over 10 years ago after settling in Roswell with my family. I have learned over the years that Tom is a man of high integrity, genuine and extremely knowledgeable in his field. Along with being honest, he is a straight shooter and will let you know where you stand. He will provide you with personal attention you don’t get at bigger firms and will go the extra mile. As legal matters can be frightening to deal with, Tom will guide you through the process and get you the results you need.
