Disfigurement is when a person’s appearance is affected due to a scar, burn, change in skin texture, or differently shaped body part.
- Burns, including fire and chemical
- Derma- brasion
- Reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD)
- Road rash injuries
- Teeth, mouth, and jaw injuries

In addition to physical scarring, many accidents can lead to the injured person coping with mental and emotional trauma. This includes diminished self-esteem, depression, and anxiety.
