Definition - What does Disfigure mean?

Disfigure refers to a permanent change caused in someone’s body. This particularly happens when a person is left with visible marks such as scars on their body and the fact that it’s permanent means that the person’s physical appearance is affected.

Justipedia explains Disfigure

Claims and lawsuits can be filed by the affected person against the party whose negligence, rather intentional or not, has resulted in disfigurement. Physical marks, which are visible may prove substantial in this case and can be added to the damages.
