Scar Injury & Surgical Scarring Compensation Claims
Body scarring is often the unavoidable by-product of an injury or accident that leaves victims with a constant reminder of the incident. It also leaves the sufferer having to deal with psychological damage, including loss of confidence if the scarring is visible.
How much could you claim?
Compensation for body scarring can often improve a victim's circumstances, and a claim can be made to pay for loss of earnings, rehabilitation and medical costs, such as plastic surgery.
You may have a valid claim if the accident was the result of another person's negligence and is based on the severity of the scarring:
Full body disfigurement: Up to £75,000
Barely noticeable minor scars: From £500
The amount of compensation you receive may differ as aspects of special damages have yet still to be considered.
The types of compensation you are entitled to:
There are 2 main types of compensation you can claim for in a claim:
- Pain and suffering of the injury (General damages): This is an injury or damage to any part of the body, can lead to the victim experiencing pain and suffering for which there is entitlement of compensation.
- Financial losses and expenses (Special damages): This may include income which is lost for the time taken off work, medical expenses, travel expenses for treatment etc.
