Common scarring areas
Scarring can be incredibly distressing for the victim of an accident. Scars can be unsightly and can also act as a reminder of a traumatic incident. Facial scars are among the most common injuries and can result in both physical and psychological issues lasting a lifetime. Areas of the body most commonly affected by scarring include:

Does the Location of my Scar Affect the Compensation I am Entitled to?
In short, yes it does. For example, a scar to the face is much more visual than a scar on the foot and so compensation for facial scarring is generally higher as it can have more of an impact on the day to day life of the person involved.
No matter the location or severity of the scar or burn, if it has caused any level of disfigurement then you could be entitled to significant compensation.
What do I need to make a Scarring Compensation Claim?
We can help you make your compensation claim, but there are are a number of important reports and assessments that may help you claim the full amount of compensation.
Medical reports from a consultant plastic surgeon
Having a report from a consultant plastic surgeon is potentially the most important piece of information to find out about the level of compensation that you may be entitled to. Not only does it describe the injuries, but a future prognosis will also be given that details any possible future symptoms that may impact you. We will arrange for you to see an expert who will provide a suitable report for your claim.
Psychological reaction to workplace scarring
If you work with heavy duty machinery or other tools that operate at a high temperature and this is responsible for causing your scarring, it may have a significant impact on the level of compensation that you are entitled to. It is important that as part of a claim your psychological reaction to scarring in the workplace is comprehensively documented.
As well as the psychological injuries that might have been suffered as the result of scarring, it is likely that financial loss will also play a significant part in the compensation that you will be entitled to. If you have required time away from work or the scarring has negatively impacted any opportunities of future employment for you, then this must also be factored into your claim.
