Scarring Injuries - Disability Claim

If you have been involved in an accident as the result of somebody else's negligence which has resulted in serious disfiguring scarring, we may be able to assist you in recovering benefits and compensation. The specific manner in which compensation may be recovered will depend on the type of incident which you have been involved in and we would refer you to our description of incident types for more information on this.

Scarring Injuries

Serious scarring may entitle you to compensation for pain and suffering, both physical and mental. You may also be entitled to compensation for medical and rehabilitation expenses, loss of income, future loss of income, housekeeping expenses, and other time.

We also represent a large number of clients who have been denied benefits under either a group disability insurance policy or a private policy. These cases are usually heavily dependent on obtaining the necessary medical evidence to prove the disability in a way contemplated by the policy in question.

We encourage you to contact us so that we can assess you claim in order to determine whether we can be of assistance to you.

There are time limits to all claims and any delay in proceeding may be subject to a deadline so you should not delay in proceeding with your claim or obtaining legal advice to clarify these deadlines.

Facts & Figures - Scarring Injuries

There are three main types of scar. These are atrophic or depressed scars, hypertrophic or elevated scars, and keloidal scars, which are actually a type of tumor. The symptoms of atrophic and hypertrophic scarring injuries are redness, healing that takes place only on the site of the injury, and thickness of the scarring tissue. A keloidal scar will extend beyond the original injury and can be tender, itchy, or even painful.

Fact: A healthy person with a well-treated injury is less likely to develop severe scarring.

Fact: It is thought that people with darker skin are more likely to develop a keloidal scar.
