Scar and Laceration Injury Claims

 

A scar occurs when the body heals itself following an injury. Some scars are temporary and will fade over time. Others, perhaps from more serious injuries, can be permanent.

Scars and laceration injuries are relatively common workplace injuries, particularly in the Catering and Cleaning industry. Any working environment which involves extreme temperatures, chemicals, electrical equipment or sharp machinery presents a risk of a burn, scar or laceration.

Whether temporary or permanent, scars can affect people in a number of different ways. Not only are they painful initially, they can leave behind deep psychological and emotional trauma long after the physical pain has gone. Loss of confidence is common, particularly if the scar is visible such as on the face or neck.

If you have been scarred because of an injury that was someone else’s fault, then you may be able to file a scar injury claim.

Common causes of scar injuries

Health & Safety in the Workplace

  • Boiling or very hot water is spilled from an appliance in the kitchen or workplace
  • An employee’s skin comes into contact with a chemical that causes a burn or scar
  • An employee’s body comes into contact with an unprotected blade that causes a laceration
  • An employee slips and comes into contact with or causes a spillage of chemicals or boiling water

How much compensation will I receive?

There is no set amount of compensation awarded to scar injury claims. There are a number of factors involved that will determine how much you will receive, including the extent of the scar injury and whether it will be temporary or permanent. If the scar could be removed or its appearance improved through cosmetic surgery, then the cost of the procedure may be included in the settlement amount.

Part of your scar injury claim will involve seeking a medical report from a cosmetic surgeon who will be able to provide an expert opinion on the extent of the injury, if the scar can be removed and a prognosis for future symptoms.
