Facial Injuries & Scarring Claims
Suffering from facial injuries and bodily scarring can be an incredibly distressing and painful experience, and may have an adverse effect on someone’s self-esteem and confidence.
Scarring, grazes, cuts, bruises, open wounds and fractures are some examples of facial injuries, and these injuries can be sustained whilst;
- on holiday
- in the workplace
- in a road traffic accident
- in the home
- walking on the street
Facial injuries and scarring may occur as a result of other peoples’ negligence, and if this is the case, you are entitled to compensation by law.
The psychological after-effects of sustaining facial injuries and scarring may also be damaging for someone, and often these hidden effects go unnoticed in comparison to the physical injuries.
At Watermans, we strive to obtain the best result for you as a client, to get you the compensation you deserve.
We understand that compensation may be essential in assisting with any medical costs or loss of earnings as a result of obtaining a facial injury or scar.

How much compensation?
How much compensation for facial injuries and scarring?
The amount of compensation potentially awarded as a result of facial injury and scarring depends on the severity of the facial injury. Medical examinations and reports will be taken into account, and if there is a need for reconstructive surgery then this will also affect the size of the compensation awarded.
Apart from medical expenses, the loss of earnings during the period of being injured, along with travel expenses, can be claimed for. Compensation can also be claimed for psychological damage as a result of having a facial injury or scar.
