How Much Compensation For Scarring
If you have endured a scar and would like to know how much compensation for scarring then there are a number of factors you should bear in mind.

Different areas of the body will attract different amounts in terms of compensation. For example, you will receive more if your face is scarred as the face is the most visible part of your body.

Compensation Levels For Scarring

The main points to be considered in facial disfigurement claims, which are a form of scarring, will be the nature of the injury, the extent of residual scarring, the age and how the scar affected you psychologically.

  • If you are a woman and have suffered very severe facial scarring then your claim could be worth up to £69,500. Cases like this usually involve psychological damage also. For substantial scarring which is not considered the most severe you can expect to receive around £21,600 up to £34,600. Trivial scar claims for women usually start at £1,225
  • For men, very severe facial scarring claims can be up to £46,900 and like cases for women, they can begin at around £1,225. Figures exist in between these broad brackets for less significant scarring which attracts approximately £6,500 – £12,850 in fees. Cases considered as ‘less severe scarring’ range from £12,850 up to £21,500

Other Scarring Injury Compensation Levels

It is difficult to pinpoint compensation amounts for scarring of other parts of the body but there are some general guidelines you can use.

  • For noticeable laceration scars of the legs, arms, hands, back or chest you can expect to receive from £5,430 – £16,250 in compensation
  • There is a scar left following an exploratory laporatory ( a full size incision in the abdomen). If no internal injury has been found following the invasive operation then you can expect to receive around £6,175 in compensation
  • If there is a very visible scar to the arms, legs, hands, back or chest and/or there are several superficial scars in these areas then £1,680 to £5,430 can be granted
  • Burns will usually attract more in compensation amounts as there is significant pain associated with a burn on top of a potential scar. If you have burns covering 40% of your body then figures can go up to £75,000
