If you’ve suffered facial scarring as a result of an accident that wasn’t your fault it’s vital that you contact a personal injury solicitor with experience in this area.
This area of the law can be extremely complicated requiring an expert legal team to secure the required level of compensation.
The accident type does not determine the level of compensation, with the most important factor being the severity of the facial injury.
The level of compensation can be calculated following a report by a plastic surgeon, based upon a medical examination and a review of your hospital and GP notes.
Included in the report will be details regarding the severity of the injury, descriptions of the injury, photographs of the scarring and details of the future explaining how any corrective surgery may assist in the reduction of the scars’ appearance.
Once this report has been provided to your solicitor, they’ll analyse it in accordance with existing case law and make an assessment of the potential levels of compensation.

In addition to this, the young also tend to receive higher levels of compensation as they are thought to be more self-conscious and will also have to live with the disfigurement for longer.
The following is just a guide as to the potential levels of compensation to be awarded to men and women for facial scarring and disfigurement:
