Acid attacks were practically unheard of prior to the horrific incident involving former model Katie Piper in 2008, where an ex-boyfriend and an accomplice threw acid in her face, resulting in extremely severe facial injuries and the loss of sight in one of her eyes.
Acid attacks are considered to be one of the most hideous and callous pre-meditated crimes there are. Suspects target their victims, planning and preparing, in order to inflict the most painful and life-changing injuries they possibly can. Victims will usually be left with facial scarring that will require multiple surgical procedures. There is likely to be a degree of psychological injury caused as a result of sustaining these injuries.
