About Disfigurement and Scarring Claims
Disfigurement or severe scarring is not just a physical issue. Often, the psychological trauma involved in having to adapt to life with a serious disfigurement is just as damaging as the injury itself. Such injuries can also have a detrimental effect on a person’s confidence.
The incident that caused your injury may have left you requiring time off work - resulting in loss of earnings - seeking care and assistance from loved ones or having to travel to see specialist doctors and undergo extensive surgery. Although compensation cannot turn back the clock, it can equip you to deal with the impact of your injury through therapy, specialist treatment or surgery which may be able to reduce the scarring.
Common Causes of Disfigurement and Scarring
There are many incidents that can potentially leave you with prominent disfigurement, including:
- Road traffic accidents
- Chemical or fire burns
- Unnecessary or negligent surgery
- Accidents at work
You are eligible to claim for the physical and psychological trauma of scarring if it was the result of another person’s negligence, was avoidable or happened during an accident where someone else was to blame.
