Car accidents, chemical burns, and medical malpractice such as surgical burns can all
cause disfigurement and give rise to a medical malpractice lawsuit. Other
causes may include:

In addition to physical pain and discomfort, a patient may suffer emotional
ramifications, such as shame, embarrassment, depression, sadness, grief,
anger, low self-esteem, social withdrawal, and anxiety. A victim may need
counseling in order to overcome these feelings and thoughts, or the help
of a support group.

The medical expenses a disfigured patient may incur while treating physical
and mental injuries can be extensive, but malpractice attorneys can help
pursue compensation for those costs you shouldn’t have to pay. To
