Any injury which leaves a permanent scar can be devastating. Whether it’s a facial disfigurement, or something less visible to others, our solicitors understand how this physical change may affect your confidence and wellbeing. That’s why they will strive to get you the scar compensation you deserve. How To Make A Scar Injury Claim Arrange your free initial consultation by calling 0800 056 4110 to start your scar injury claim. During this consultation, we’ll ask you some questions about the injury, including how it happened, who you believe to be at fault, and how your life has changed as a result. If we think you have a claim, we’ll approach the person or organisation you believe is responsible. If they accept responsibility, we’ll negotiate a compensation settlement for you that takes into account the psychological impact of your scar. If we think you have a claim but the other party doesn’t admit responsibility, we’ll still fight for compensation for you – all the way to court if necessary. We can help you to claim for: Tattoo, cosmetic or hairdressing injuries Burns and scalds Chemical exposure Cuts or Lacerations. A scarring injury will likely have a lasting effect on your life, from reducing your confidence to loss of earnings and an inability to take part in leisure activities. Your compensation settlement will likely be higher for visible areas of the body, such as the face, that may cause significant psychological harm. How Long Do You Have To Make A Scar Compensation Claim? In most cases you need to make a claim within three years of your injury taking place. In criminal assault cases, you generally have two years after the date of the injury. However, there are some exceptions to this, such as if you were too ill to make a claim. While we won’t hurry you, we do advise you to claim as soon as you feel well enough to do so, as this helps us to gather evidence more easily. How Much Compensation Can I Claim For A Body Scar Injury? There’s no fixed amount of compensation that you’ll receive for a scarring injury. The settlement you receive will vary depending on many factors. We’ll assess: The level of physical damage Psychological trauma Loss of earnings Whether or not you’ll need ongoing support. Scarring injuries will likely need many medical treatments. Where applicable, we can also help with interim compensation payments for costs such as hospital travel.
