Facial disfigurements typically occur following injury, illness or a severe allergic reaction. These injuries can happen during birth or any time after. They can be the result of accidents or intentional damage. Any kind of facial injury could be considered a disfigurement if it has a noticeable effect on the person’s appearance.
Unfortunately, it is rarely the physical pain or discomfort caused by the disfigurement which is the worst symptom. These injuries can be incredibly damaging to your self-esteem. When you go outside, people can stare or avoid you. This can be even worse for children, who can be extremely stressed and embarrassed about the injury. We all know how cruel children can be, so bullying of those with facial injuries is extremely common.
Here at Tylers, we can help you to claim the compensation that you or your child deserves following a serious injury or illness. Our experienced team of solicitors can help you to get the compensation that you deserve. We will help you to work out if you have a viable claim against the person or company responsible. From there, we will provide a comprehensive legal service to guide you through the entire process.
The amount of compensation that you receive will depend on several factors. This can include the length and severity of your symptoms. The impact the injury has had on your daily life and the loss of wages/potential wages will be taken into consideration. You could also include the cost of plastic surgery and other medical treatment.
Here at Tylers Solicitors, we can deliver a wide range of no-win, no-fee legal services to help you get the compensation you are entitled to. The money that you receive will not lessen the pain that you suffer from, but it can make your life much easier. You will be able to make practical changes to your home, improve your transport and otherwise improve your quality of life.
|Type of Facial Disfigurement||Description||Amount of Compensation|
|Trivial Scarring or Minor Disfigurement with No/Little Psychological Concerns||This can include minor scars and burns which are barely noticeable. These injuries will rarely cause any kind of serious psychological issue.||£1,125 to £2,300.|
|Minor Scarring||Minor scarring and disfigurements which can be hidden. No serious psychological reaction, other than that of an ordinary person.||£2,300 to £9,000.|
|Significant and Noticeable Disfigurement||Visible and lasting cosmetic damage and minor psychological effects.||£9,000 to £31,750.|
|Extremely Severe and Noticeable Scarring/Disfigurement||Serious disfigurement of the face, including long-term or permanent scarring. This will often involve serious psychological damage. This injury can be noticeable even after plastic surgery attempts.||£31,750 to £64,000.|
It is also worth noting that, typically, women will receive more compensation than men for facial injuries and disfigurements. Here at Tylers Solicitors, we will help you to get the maximum amount of compensation that you are entitled to. You age will also be taken into consideration. The younger you are, or the age of your child, will often impact the level of compensation that you receive.
There are many different kinds of facial disfigurements. Some can be caused by birth-injuries related to clinical negligence, whereas others will be the result of physical injuries. There are also multiple diseases and illnesses which can lead to facial injuries and disfigurement.
A birth-related disfigurement is a serious injury caused by an accident or injury sustained during birth. These kinds of birth-related facial disfigurement can include:
- Cleft Lips “Harelips” and Cleft Pallet.
- Facial Birthmarks.
- Cranio-Facial Conditions.
Physical injuries can cause facial disfiguring. These injuries can either be accidental or deliberate. Some of the most common physical causes of disfigurements of the face include:
- Burns and Acid Attacks.
- Car Crash Injuries.
- Scarring from Glass and Sharp Weapons.
- Animal Bites/Scratches.
There are many diseases and illnesses which can lead to facial disfiguring. Some of these can be caused at birth, while others can be picked up later in life. These include:
- Severe Allergic Reactions.
In most cases, facial disfigurements cannot be fully treated. They can be made less noticeable through plastic surgery, but cosmetic injuries are often permanent. Other treatments which can reduce noticeable disfigurement include:
- Cosmetic Camouflage.
- Skin Grafts.
- Sandpapering of Scar Tissue.
- Make-Up Application.
Facial scarring burns and other disfigurements can lead to serious psychological conditions. These issues can have a serious, long-term impact on your life. The psychological conditions that these wounds can cause include:
- Serious Sleep Disorders.
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Severe facial disfigurements and deformities can qualify as disabilities. In many cases, they will need to have an impact on your senses, such as sight or hearing. Serious cosmetic injuries can count as a disability too, particularly those with accompanying psychological issues.
Here in the UK, approximately 542,000 people suffer from some kind of significant disfigurement to their face. This is roughly one in 111 people in the UK. Many more suffer from cosmetic injuries across their body but are able to hide them.
Approximately 92,000 people in the UK suffer from facial birth defects. These congenital or birth conditions can sometimes be rectified with surgery, but many are left with them throughout their lives.
Somewhere in the region of 66,000 have lasting facial injuries and disfigurements related to physical accidents. The most common physical injuries include burns and facial scarring which can be both uncomfortable and painful.
