3 Factors Which can Affect the Compensation for a Scar From a Personal Injury

 

When a personal injury leads to a scar, many times the victim will be able to make a claim for that scar. But as it is with many other claims, the amount that someone will be able to recover depends on a few factors. Here are the factors which can affect the compensation someone will receive for a scar.

Location of scar

The first thing that will affect the amount of money that you receive for a scar is where it’s located on your body. If the scar’s thought to be disfiguring and it’s in a spot which is always visible, such as on the face, the award is more likely to be higher.

Gender of Claimant

Generally a woman will receive more compensation than a man will when it comes to a scar.  With all other factors being equal, a woman’s compensation will usually be higher than a man’s.

Age of Claimant

When a scar happens to someone who is younger, such as a child, the compensation amount will usually be higher. The reason for this is because the victim has to deal with the disfigurement for much longer and a younger person is more likely to be affected psychologically by the scar.
