Facial Scarring Claims
Have you suffered a facial scar in an accident that was caused due to the negligence of someone else? If you have, you may be entitled to claim financial compensation.
Facial scarring can have a devastating effect on the victim’s life and for this reason, it is possible to make facial scarring claims.
The amount of compensation that can be obtained for facial scarring depends on a number of factors. It depends on the severity of the scar and can be influenced by the victim’s age and sex. Facial looks are of more importance to the women and therefore, women tend to receive a higher level of compensation for facial scarring than men. For example, a man who has sustained serious facial scarring can receive a maximum of £42,000 and a woman with similar injuries can receive up to £62,000.
In addition, if the claimant is young, then a higher level of compensation can be obtained. This is due to the fact that a younger claimant will have to live with the disfigurement for a longer period of time.
Facial scarring not only causes physical problems, but they cause psychological injuries too. There are many different types of accidents which can cause facial scarring. Examples of accidents which can result in facial scarring include:
- Burns from chemicals, hazardous substances or heat sources
- Medical negligence
- Heated implements
- Road accidents
- Slips, trips and falls
- Sports accidents
- Falls from heights
Minor scars can heal naturally over some time, but if it is caused due to serious injuries, then it can result in permanent disfigurement.
