Moving forward with Indiana Model Jury Instruction 703, we can now look at subsection 7, which deals with damages associated with permanent scarring or disfigurement. This can occur if someone has been injured in such a way that requires skin grafts or plastic surgery. These injuries can be caused by burns or in a car accident.
If you get in a car accident and have permanent scarring or disfigurement, this can be calculated in your damages award. These kinds of injuries can take many surgeries to repair, whether those surgeries are skin grafts or some other kind of plastic surgeries. These types of procedures can be financially consuming, and they can be painful.
Sometimes, a person can recover damages separately for permanent scarring or disfigurement. However, this can depend on what kind of injuries someone has and how extensive they are. Any type of skin graft procedure or plastic surgery can cost you money.
