Scars can have a huge impact on your confidence and self-esteem. Having a scar can affect your self image, personal relationships, social life and mental health.
When we help you make a claim for personal injury or medical negligence, we know how seriously scars can affect you. We do not just treat a scar as just another part of your injuries. We know that getting the right medical input is very important, not just to make sure that your scarring injury is managed in the best way possible, but also to make sure that you get the best advice as to whether anything can be done to minimise the effect of any scarring, if this is important to you.
Scars can sometimes be treated by plastic surgery. If this is something you are interested in, we can help you claim the money needed to cover the cost of this treatment privately. Such treatment is not always available on the NHS.
Counselling can also be useful if you are suffering psychologically. Talking to someone can help if the accident has caused a phobia, depression or loss of body confidence. These costs can all be claimed, if this is something that you need.
We can also consider whether special make up can help. While many high street cosmetics are fine for minor blemishes, there are specific skin camouflage brands on the market which can provide better skin cover solutions for both men and women. They have a high pigment, are long lasting (often up to 8 hours on the face and 2-3 days on the body) and are water resistant, so you can swim or work out. A professional Skin Camouflage Practitioner can help you find the correct colour and product, helping to boost confidence and self-esteem. We can arrange a consultation for you and include the cost in your claim of having to buy different make up going forward.
Whether your scars have been caused by burns, a road traffic accident, an animal attack, surgery that has gone wrong or something else, we are here to help you.
