When can I make a claim for a facial scarring injury?

Following medical diagnosis of your injury, you are able to make a claim for compensation immediately. It is recommended that you consult a specialist personal injury solicitor in the first instance in order to ascertain whether you have a valid claim or not. The only proof that is needed is that the facial scarring injury sustained by you was as a result of another’s negligence and carelessness. The sooner that you seek legal advice then the greater the chance of you obtaining key witness testimonies and other relevant evidence needed to prove your claim.

What is facial scarring?

Facial scarring occurs following an injury to the face where an individual is left permanently disfigured and is one of the worst types of skin scarring that one can sustain. Facial scars themselves arise from a number of different situations such as road traffic accidents, medical negligence complaints, cosmetic treatments, animal attacks or even as a result of burns. Often one can sustain some psychological damage alongside a facial scarring injury owing to its permanency and complete disfigurement. Therefore, if you have suffered a facial scarring injury of which was through the fault of another’s negligence then you are entitled to make a claim for compensation for the pain and suffering sustained by you.

How much compensation is possible?

Compensation is reliant on the severity of the injury itself as well as the pain and suffering endured throughout yet there is no defined sum that can be expected. In facial scarring injury cases, psychological damage will also be accounted for since permanent facial disfigurement is one of the most traumatic types of personal injury that an individual can sustain in their lifetime. However, other financial considerations such as your current and future loss of earnings, medical costs as well as travel expenses will also be included in your compensation offer. Nevertheless, since facial scarring injuries are ultimately decided on a case-by-case basis, it is always advisable to consult a specialist personal injury solicitor who can better direct you as to the facts in your own case. The law does provide some guidance as to the award of compensation in facial scarring injuries with minor cases attracting anything from around £1,000 whilst more serious type injuries can increase up to £75,000. However, these figures are only indicative and each case is founded on its own facts.
