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
Following negations with the defendant, Mr X was offered £250,000 gross of the interim payments of £52,009 to settle the claim. Mr X accepted this offer and was very thankful for our assistance with his claim.
Absolutely amazing service, I had an accident back in 2016 and they fought tooth and nail to get me the treatment and pay out that I deserved, my case handler Amy kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would definitely recommend Howells to anyone.
From start to finish my daughter’s medical negligence claim was handled brilliantly. Communication was excellent and her case was handled sensitively and professionally, with a successful outcome at the end.
Excellent service as always, Highly recommended wouldn't use anybody else , always on hand to help and advice . Thank you!!!!!

Sue dealt with my personal injury claim with professionalism at all times. She kept both myself and my son fully informed throughout the process and always responded to queries quickly and efficiently. I would have no hesitation in using this firm again.

Stuart Marks
I recently used Howells' for a claim. After an initial telephone conversation, Amy (our assigned representative) went through the process of our potential claim. She outlined time frames and the strength of our case. We ended up receiving compensation above our expectations. I was thoroughly impressed the team from Howells and would have no hesitation in recommending them to others. They handled the whole process in a manner which inspired confidence, knowing that we were in good hands.

Simon Marks
Howells have been fantastic when dealing with my claim and i would recommend them to anyone. I would like to thank Sue for her outstanding service and patience throughout my case. You were great and I cannot thank you enough for the end result. Also thank you to Glendora and Amy for all your help. 5* service all round

Gavin Herbert
Life changing issues affected our daughter due to a misdiagnosis and then catalogue of errors. We are so grateful to Sue and the team and the lovely Glendora! Thank you so much for all your hard work, perseverance and pure doggedness. Hopefully this has saved another family from having to go through this! Amazing service from such nice people! Enjoy the hamper!
