LPS has dedicated solicitors that have helped thousands of people successfully claim burns and scaring compensation. We aim to the maximum amount of compensation available for your claim using our no win, no fee claims process.
If you have been injured in an accident which has left you with a scar on one or more parts of your body, you may be feeling increasingly self-conscious about your injury. People who have sustained significant scarring, particularly to parts of their body which are visible to others, often find that they lack the confidence they previously had, and they avoid certain situations or events.
There are three types of burns:
- First-degree burns – where the damage is only to the outer layer of skin
- Second-degree burns- where the damage is to the outer layer and the layer underneath
- Third-degree burns – where the deepest layer of skin and tissues underneath is damaged or destroyed.
Burns can cause swelling, blistering, scarring and, in serious cases, shock and even death. They can also lead to infections because they damage your skin’s protective barrier. Antibiotic creams can prevent or treat infections. After a third-degree burn, you need skin or synthetic grafts to cover exposed tissue and encourage new skin to grow. First- and second-degree burns usually heal without grafts.
Claims involving scarring can often take longer to settle than claims for straightforward muscular injuries, as it can often take some time for the scarring to settle and for the specialist to be able to form an opinion on the extent of the long term appearance of the scar.
How much compensation can I get?
The amount of compensation you receive for the scarring will largely depend on:
- The extent of the scarring
- The location of the scar on your body
- Whether or not the scar is likely to fade in time
We have helped clients with burns, scars and laceration compensation claims following a range of accidents, including:
- road accidents
- workplace accidents
- accidents in public places (including dog bites)
- criminal attacks
