Can you sue for a facial scar?
Your ability to claim compensation depends on several factors like how severe the injury/scaring is, the level of impact it had/will have on your life & the amount of the accident that you are determined to be at fault for. If your face injury or scarring was caused by an accident you weren't entire at fault for, you may be eligible to claim compensation. Contact Steve Caya to schedule a free consultation and we'll help determine the strength of your case.
Average settlement for scarring
Every injury, like every accident, is unique and there is no true average compensation or calculator for permanent scarring or permanent disfigurement. Compensation for permanent disfigurement or scarring depends on a multitude of factors. Among these, the most important are:
- The location of the injury
- Disfigurement and scarring that happens to your body that is viewable even when fully clothed, like facial scarring & disfigurement, tend to be worth much more.
- The severity of the injury and the potential impact on your life (both personal and professional)
- The severity and impact of the injury are the largest factors in determining the award. A facial scar to a model would be worth more than the same injury to a welder since it can drastically impact their ability to find work.
- Your gender
- All scarring and disfigurement cases, regardless of severity, are seen as more impactful to women and are worth more to insurance adjusters and juries than if they were male.
If your face injury and scarring were caused by an accident you weren’t entirely at fault for, you may be eligible to claim compensation. Winning a facial injury claim hinges on proving liability and standing up to the insurers and legal teams trying to minimize your settlement.
The best way to understand the value of your facial injury claim and win your case is by partnering with an experienced injury lawyer.
