Have you been scarred or permanently injured?
Whilst most people who suffer injuries will be able to make a full recover in time, some injuries will cause permanent or life-changing injuries. If, for example, you’ve suffered an injury which affects your mobility, you may find that you need to use a wheelchair or walking apparatus to get around.
Similarly, a serious injury which affects your legs could limit your mobility significantly and means that you need to change your day-to-day lifestyle in order to adapt. Although permanent injuries can be difficult to cope with, there is help available for the emotional impact that they can have.
If you’ve suffered an injury which has caused a scar, you may also be able to access help. Although most people have some minor scars and blemishes, a large or particularly noticeable scar can make people self-conscious.
If you find that you feel self-conscious because of your injuries, or that they’ve had an unwanted emotional impact, it’s important to let your personal injury solicitor in Plumpton know when you make a claim for compensation.
Although it’s the type of injuries you sustained and the severity of your injuries which will generally affect your compensation award, any emotional impact that the injuries have had can also be taken into account and you may find that the amount of compensation you receive is increased as a result.
