Skin Injuries and Body Scarring

Skin Injuries and Body Scarring

Have you sustained skin injuries and body scarring as the result of an accident?  Suffering from skin injuries and subsequent scarring can have a psychological effect on an individual as well as the more obvious physical scarring. Body scars can cause a lack of confidence and an aversion to being seen in public, making daily life a stressful experience. This added trauma can prompt individuals to pursue skin injury compensation claims for their injuries. Scarring can range from minor to severe with cases being judged on the extent of the scarring. In the most serious cases of disfigurement awards can reach upwards of £70,000.

  • Minor scarring to arms, legs, or hands £500 to £4,250 compensation
  • Moderate scarring approximately £5,000 compensation
  • Severe or disfiguring scar of the legs, arms or hands – up to £15,000 compensation
  • Full body disfigurement– approximately £75,000 compensation
