    Default Small Scar from a Play Area Injury

    My question involves an injury that occurred in the state of: California

    My son suffered a nickle size scar on his back from a Burger King play place incident, from a screw protruding from the playplace. I took him to his primary and the primary recommend a dermatologist. Medical bills equal $315. There is a permanent scar on my son's back/shoulder area. Aside from the medical bills, the claim's adjuster has asked how much I am looking for. What should I tell him? I am no expert, but I think it sucks that my son got hurt and sustained a permanent scar on his upper back/shoulder area. I understand that certain injuries are only worth so much and also in relation to the bill's amount. I am not greedy and I know this is not serious injury left. What is a scar worth?

    You should tell him how much you're looking for.

    You've given us virtually no information about the scar or its visibility, so it's impossible for us to guess as to what an adjuster might offer. If it's serious and visible, even at that size, consult a cosmetic surgeon about the cost of revision and built that into your suggestion.

    $315 unless you are trying to profit off BK. I have scars all over from being a kid. It never once occurred to me I should sue someone for playing.

    did you lose time at work dealing with this? that would also be reasonable to be compensated for.

    I have so many scars of that type or nature .. too many to count. Who cares? Your scar is worth about fifty bucks IMO...


    Not the end of the world.

    The answers haven't changed from the last time you asked this question.

    ...or fade away entirely. Most of the injuries I sustained working in the restaurant biz in college have faded almost to invisibility, and ALL of the scars I obtained as a child are gone, even the one from my brain surgery. The human body has a remarkable capacity to heal.
