How Much Compensation For Facial Disfigurement Or Scarring

The underlying reasons for facial disfigurement suffered will be considered when weighing up a compensation amount. This includes examining the extent of the injury and treatment required; whether or not there is facial scarring; the age of the victim and what kind of social and psychological impact has arisen.

Below are settlement amounts relating to each gender but it is worth noting that these figures overlap, making the issue of gender less of a factor when deciding a compensation amount. Rather, the emphasis is on the level of impact the disfigurement has had.
