A facial scarring injury claim for compensation can arise from many circumstances – road traffic accident, injury at work, dog bite, etc. – and the amount of facial scarring injury compensation you may receive can vary widely according to the severity of the injury, the length of time it may take to heal and the impact that the injury will have on your quality of life.
Because of the combination of factors that can influence a facial injury scarring compensation claim, it is always in your best interests to use the services of an experienced personal injury claims solicitor when you have sustained a facial injury – with the potential to leave a permanent scar – in an accident for which you were not wholly to blame.
You will have sought medical attention when you first had your accident, and your doctor´s medical notes will help determine the seriousness of the facial scarring injury. However, the costs of any ongoing or remedial treatment plus compensation for psychological trauma have to be integrated into a facial scarring injury claim if you want to ensure that you are not undercompensated for your injury.
Making a Facial Scarring Injury Claim
Claims for facial scarring injury compensation are submitted to the Injuries Board Ireland, except where your facial scar has been caused by clinical negligence. An experienced personal injury claims solicitor will know exactly how to complete the application form to ensure that you receive your full entitlement of special damages to cover ongoing medical costs and facial scarring injury compensation for any psychological trauma.
Your solicitor will also be able to represent you in litigation should the party responsible for causing the initial injury deny their liability, or claim that you contributed to your injuries by your own negligence – grounds for the Injuries Board Ireland to decline assessment of your facial scarring injury claim and to issue you with an authorisation to pursue your claim through the court system.
You may also find that you are approached by the negligent party´s insurance company with an offer of early settlement for your facial scarring injury compensation claim. Often, these offers are inappropriate to the amount of facial scarring injury compensation you should expect to receive. By introducing a solicitor into negotiations you can be certain of receiving a fair and adequate settlement – often much sooner than when your claim is left in the hands of the Injuries Board Ireland.
