This photo shows a scar across a man’s forearm which we settled for $150,000
We settled a scar on the inside of the lip similar to this for $16,000. The scar was smaller and didn’t show up on a photo. The scar in this photo plus a small scar on his leg (among other previous scars) was settled for $25,000.
This client’s first lawyer couldn’t get her plastic surgeon to fix this but we did. The scar on our client’s face was settled for the entire insurance policy limit of $50,000. Although it’s worth much more, that was the limit of the insurance policy. The policyholder had no assets and was a friend of our client, so we did not pursue any more money.
The injury below (2 photos) was caused in a hair salon when the woman cutting his hair accidentally snipped his ear. They put a bandage on it and told him it was nothing. When he went home, his mother took him to a plastic surgeon. They learned it was a more serious injury and required surgery to prevent a scar. He didn’t have health insurance and we got the plastic surgeon to agree to get paid at the end of the case. The insurance company offered $8,000 and after a meeting wouldn’t offer more than $10,000. We arbitrated the case and was awarded $25,000.
Immediately after plastic surgery but before it healed with a tiny scar
