Facial scar injuries can be sustained in almost any situation. You could receive a bad laceration to the face simply by slipping on a wet surface in the supermarket and catching your head awkwardly on one of the shelves, or receive a facial burn from a hot shower at the gym. Where a facial injury results in a scar, you are entitled to make a facial scar injury compensation claim, and may be entitled to integrate into your claim the costs of plastic surgery to remove the scar.
As with any injury, it is essential that you receive appropriate medical attention as soon as possible. A skilled medical practitioner may be able to treat the wound in such a way that a permanent scar is avoided, but should facial scarring occur, your visit to the doctor will have been recorded in your medical history and the notes will used to support your claim for facial scar injury compensation.
Making a Facial Scar Injury Compensation Claim
Making a facial scar injury compensation claim should always be done with the assistance of an experienced personal injury claims solicitor. One of the key elements that will determine how much facial scar injury compensation you are awarded is liability, and it is important that the strongest case possible is prepared on your behalf to ensure that the negligent party does not try to avoid his responsibilities or claim that you contributed to your facial scar injury by your own actions.
This is especially important in cases which involve young children, as they have a tendency to run around and bump into things. Negligent parties will be keen to say it is the child´s own fault that they have sustained a facial scar injury and even when they do accept liability, their insurance companies may attempt to offer an early settlement of facial scar injury compensation which is wholly inadequate for the trauma the child has suffered and the fact that they will display a facial scar for the rest of their lives.

What to Expect When You Call
We understand that discovering you will have a facial scar as the result of an injury can be a traumatic experience. This is especially true if the facial scar injury has happened to a young son or daughter, as you are probably more concerned about the consequences of their injury than they are.
We will listen carefully as you explain to us how the injury happened, what treatment was administered at the time and if any further treatment is proposed for the future. It is important for us to know about any psychological trauma that you or your child suffered, and how the facial scar injury has affected your – or their – quality of life.
Wherever possible we will ascertain within the initial conversation that a sufficiently strong case can be compiled in order to make it worth your while to proceed with a facial scar injury compensation claim. This does not mean you are obliged to proceed with a claim, and many of our clients have preferred to discuss their options with their family before pursuing a claim for facial scar injury compensation.
Children have two years from their eighteenth birthdays in which to file a facial scar injury compensation claim, but adults only have the two years allowed under the Statute of Limitations. In any event, it is in your best interests to deal with a claim for facial scar injury compensation while the events surrounding the accident are still fresh in the memories of witnesses.
Therefore, you should call our free facial scar injury claim advice service on 1800 911 940 at your earliest possible convenience, or complete the call-back form below.
