  • How to document a scar or disfigurement

    If you have suffered scarring or disfigurement, there are various steps that you can take to ensure you have proper medical documents to support your case.

    • Ensure the doctor or specialist indicates if there is a permanent or residual effect
    • Ensure the doctor notes if the scar or disfigurement affects mobility
    • Indicate if you have seen a doctor regarding the possibility of removing a scar
    • Indicate the cost of removing the scar to demonstrate the value of the injury

    Your Compensation

    The amount of damages you can recover will depend on several factors such as the area of the body that is affected, gender and age. A scar on the face or skin exposed to the public is more likely to be perceived as disfiguring than scar on other parts of the body. Scars that are very sensitive to touch such as on the back or stomach, are likely to be considered severe, as well.
