Usually the first thing a person tries to protect in dangerous situations is their head. The brain is a vital organ that can cause serious issues if injured, and is involved in virtually every function your body performs. However, one of the most important protectors of your body, and the largest organ, is the skin. When an individual suffers from a scar or disfigurement on the exterior of their body, it can take a serious mental toll as well as physical.
Scars and disfigurements as a consequence of the negligence of someone else is a basis to take legal action. Even less severe scarring can control the daily life of an individual by creating issues with their confidence or employment habits.
