Facial scarring due to a pedestrian accident

Pedestrian accidents can lead to many consequences for victims, whether they lose their lives or struggle with immobility that will affect them permanently. However, there are many other potential concerns for pedestrians who are struck by victims, even if they are fortunate to survive a brutal accident without any major issues regarding mobility or broken bones. For example, a victim may sustain facial scarring due to impact with the vehicle that struck them or after hitting their head on the ground. Sadly, these scars can be devastating in more than one way.

Those who sustain facial scarring may struggle with depression and a lack of confidence. In some cases, they may lose their job or find it harder to gain new employment, especially if the position requires a certain appearance (models, actors, those who work in television, online celebrities and so on). Facial scarring can also be very painful from a physical point of view and it may lead to costly expenses for those who try to address the scarring.

Unfortunately, consequences such as facial scarring are often overlooked when it comes to pedestrian accidents and all types of traffic accidents. Some people may assume that because a pedestrian did not pass away or break any bones, the accident was relatively inconsequential. It is vital for people to realize how emotionally, physically and financially devastating facial injuries and scarring can be. Furthermore, victims who are considering legal action should fully explore all of the different hardships that they may have to work through as a result of a negligent driver’s actions.
