Living with facial disfigurements after an accident

Even in serious motorcycle accidents, many injuries will eventually heal. Broken bones mend themselves. Road rash fades away. Even brain injury symptoms can heal and improve over time, though they may not completely heal.

For some, though, disfigurements last forever. This can have a drastic impact on a person's life, especially if they suffer from a facial disfigurement. It can happen in all sorts of ways, with or without a helmet.

Part of the problem with a disfigurement is that it can change the way people treat you. After all, it's a common phobia. People do not know how to deal with it.

Friends and family members may come around, but, if you suffer from this type of injury, how is it going to impact the rest of your life? Will you have trouble finding a job? Will it negatively impact your self-esteem and confidence?

Every case is different, and medical science is always improving. They can do amazing things for those with serious injuries. It's only getting better. Many people get miracle treatments that they could never have imagined a decade ago.

That said, if you did not cause the motorcycle crash that led to your injuries, you do want to think about the full scope of the impact. It may go well beyond just your medical bills. Has it changed your enjoyment of life? Has it altered your relationships? Has it ended your career? You must keep all of this in mind if you are thinking about your legal options to seek out financial compensation in the wake of the crash.
