Scarring Injuries

If you have suffered an injury that has resulted in scarring, this can have a variety of consequences for your daily activities and lifestyle. Jackson Boyd understands that these injuries can make life very difficult for you, and we want to help you. We are a specialist firm of personal injury solicitors, and we deal with cases involving scarring injuries on a daily basis. One of our partners has a facial scar from an accident in childhood. We take great pride not only in our first class legal knowledge and expertise, but also in our excellent client care and our ability to secure full compensation.

If you have suffered an injury that has resulted in scarring, you will normally have only three years to bring a claim, so it is important to act quickly. To minimise the stress you experience at this difficult time and to give you extra peace of mind, we offer a free initial consultation and operate on a no-win, no-fee basis. To talk to a person who can help, now, call us on 01412496903 or contact us by e-mail.

We understand what you are going through

A scarring injury can affect how you feel about your appearance and your self confidence in general.  Scarring may have associated psychological consequences particularly if the scarring is on your face or neck, or indeed visible to others at conversational distance.

Of course, scarring injuries vary in their nature and severity.  You may have suffered severe burns in a fire or other accident, sustained a laceration because of equipment at work or even suffered from areas of discolouration following an impact with an airbag in a road traffic accident. One of our partners has a facial scar from an accident in childhood.

You may have to take time off work, be unable to drop your children off at school or even go to the supermarket to do your family shop. Everyone takes these things for granted until they are unable to do them. You may be surprised to learn that you are entitled to financial compensation for all of the ways in which you have suffered loss as a result of an accident that was not your fault. Our specialist lawyers have dealt with a number of claims just like yours and know not only what you are entitled to financially, but also the evidence required to support your claim. We will always ensure your claim has the best chance of success by investigating every element of your claim fully.

Because we know the struggle you will be facing, Jackson Boyd is here to help make things easier for you.

We’ll help you get your life back on track

When you contact the Jackson Boyd team, a specialist member of staff will talk through your circumstances to gain a comprehensive understanding of your situation, in particular the circumstances which led to you suffering your scarring injury. This will allow us not only to provide you with suitable and effective legal advice, but also to ensure that we can advise and support you appropriately through any personal injury claim that you decide to make.

Once we have taken on your case, the team here at Jackson Boyd will handle everything for you, right through to the completion of your personal injury claim. In the first instance we will quickly intimate your claim to the other party or their insurers, to ensure there is no delay in beginning your claim. This will always be done in a sensitive and professional manner and we will make sure that you are kept fully up to date with every development. We will need to gather evidence to support your claim which may include; pictures of any vehicle(s) involved in the accident, medical reports, pictures of the accident site, witness statements and police reports, as well as any other evidence we believe may improve your chances of securing maximum compensation.

In cases involving scarring we will generally instruct a report from a Plastic Surgeon and in many cases from a Consultant Psychiatrist or Psychologist.

Most personal injury cases settle out of court, and we will strive to reach settlement with the other side before taking any other action. This will allow you to receive your compensation more quickly and avoid litigation. However, our main focus is acting in your best interests, and if we believe court action is necessary, we will always act to get you the compensation you deserve.

In order to discuss commencing a personal injury claim as a result of your scarring injury, please contact Jackson Boyd today. Our team will be delighted to help you, and gain an understanding of your situation. We look forward to discussing your case and helping you further.
