Permanent Scarring Compensation

Many people may think that scarring is a by-product of a cut, surgery or burns, where a scar is expected. But what happens if you have a scar that was unexpected, infected or even bigger than you were told it would be?

Even if you have surgery where scarring is expected, if not treated properly, it can be made permanent, larger in size and depth and could even become infected. If this has happened to you, you may have a case for permanent scarring compensation.

How Can Medical Negligence Cause Scarring?

  • Unclean, unsterilised or even incorrect surgical equipment or tools used during surgeries and treatments
  • Deeper lesions made by the medical professional than is necessary
  • Too much skin has been removed (common with cosmetic surgery/procedures)
  • Incorrect or poor technique used for stiches, or even the incorrect stiches used
  • Poor aftercare or no antibiotics prescribed to manage infections
