How much could your Injury Claim be worth?

Face Injury claims for compensation can cover anything from a broken jaw and loss of teeth to an eye injury or facial scarring. They can be caused by a variety of accidents, including facial lacerations caused by a road traffic accident, chemicals burn due to an accident at work, or even an eye injury received during a physical altercation.

With an estimated five-hundred thousand facial injuries a year in the UK and with one in three of those injuries resulting in a visit to the hospital, facial injuries can have significant physical and emotional effects on the victim.

The face is a major focal point when individuals interact with each other, therefore facial injuries or disfigurements can often have significant psychological effects, damaging an individual’s self-esteem and potentially leading to secondary issues like depression and anxiety.

If you or a loved one has suffered a facial injury due to third-party negligence, you should seek the advice of a specialist personal injury solicitor who is experienced in dealing with facial injury compensation claims.

How are Facial Injury and Facial Disfigurement Compensation Settlements Calculated?

The amount of compensation you are likely to receive is calculated by combining the two key elements of any personal injury claim; the General Damages and the Special Damages.

General Damages are calculated based on the levels of pain, suffering, and loss of amenity you’ve experienced as a result of the injury. Reports from an appropriate medical expert will be used to evaluate your injury against the Judicial College guidelines. This will allow us to establish the approximate levels of compensation for the injury itself and then other considerations such as mental anguish and reduction in quality of life will be factored in.

The Special Damages can vary considerably and are awarded to ensure that you are in no way financially disadvantaged by the injury. The sort of things Special Damages will include are:

  • Loss of earnings, past, and future
  • Medical expenses already incurred and will incur in the future, e.g. Physio
  • Additional costs incurred such as taxis to appointment
  • Injury-related adaptations required to your dwelling or vehicle
  • Other financial losses or expenses directly attributable to your injury

How much compensation can you expect for a Facial or Facial Disfigurement Injury Compensation Claim?

When assessing the potential value of your facial injury compensation claim, your Personal Injury Solicitor will use the medical reports and the opinions of the medical experts to help categorise your facial injury and determine what range of compensation you may be entitled to.

You will be allocated a compensation bracket, rather than a specific figure because no two injuries are the same and no two people are affected in the same way or recover at the same rate.

Once the judge and the solicitors for both parties have determined an appropriate compensation range for your injury, it is then the job of the solicitors to try and reach a final settlement figure before it reaches court. Your solicitor will try to argue that the final settlement figure should be at the upper end of the range, whilst the liable party’s insurer will be trying to argue for the opposite.

If the two parties cannot negotiate a settlement figure that both are happy with, then your case will proceed to court, where the legal representatives for both parties will try and convince the judge that their settlement valuation is appropriate.

See above for facial injury and disfigurement compensation claim amounts. These figures represent the potential ranges for general damages only and do not factor in any special damages you may be entitled to claim. The figures are based on the guidelines set out by the Judicial College.
