Calculating Compensation After an Accident

Personal injury claims are designed to compensate victims for losses they have suffered.

One way to arrive at a compensatory amount for scarring is to obtain an opinion from a qualified medical professional as to whether the scar can be repaired and the cost of the procedure. This amount is then added to the medical expenses associated with your claim.
