Can You Seek Compensation for Disfigurement?
Many discussions around the personal injuries that follow car accidents, slip-and-falls, instances of medical malpractice, and other serious accidents focus on recovery. Recovery looks different for every injury victim, so aspects of these discussions might not apply to everyone.
For some injury victims, a full recovery is not possible. Instead, these individuals will reach their maximum medical improvement (the point at which their condition is not expected to improve any further) without getting close to where their physical health was prior to their accident.
