Compensation for Scarring Claims, Scotland

Get in touch

Scarring is a natural part of the healing process. The body forms scar tissue to protect and repair wounds. While scars do fade over time, scarring caused by deep wounds will always be prominent.

While scarring in itself doesn’t have an effect, the side effects of scarring can be devastating. These include: 

  • Self-consciousness.
  • Low self-esteem.
  • Reduced social life.
  • Bullying.

It’s unfortunate that many people still judge others based on appearance and may judge people unfairly based on visible scarring.

This can lead to reduced opportunities in education and the workplace.

If you have suffered scarring as a result of an injury, and someone else is responsible, you may be able to claim scarring compensation.

Jones Whyte will be able to take you through the claims process.

Claiming compensation for scarring

If you want to claim compensation for scarring, you can start the claims process with a simple meeting with one of our specialist scarring claim solicitors.

We will take your statement. This will cover how the scarring took place, and the effect this has had on your life.

We will then thoroughly investigate the incident. This can include collected supporting evidence such as medical records and witness statements.

Common causes of scarring include:

  • Car accidents.
  • Burns and scalds.
  • Animal bites.
  • Medical procedures.

Many people may think you can’t make scarring claims, as the scarring is secondary to the original injury; this is not the case. The effects of scarring are recognised when making personal injury claims.
