Compensation for scarring varies on whether the scar is considered disfiguring or not. If the scar is on the face or parts of the body that are constantly on show – more money is likely to be awarded.

For example, in 2017 severe scarring with moderate disfigurement for a male attracts a compensation payout: up to £25,000, but the same scarring for a woman is calculated: up to £40,000.
