8.8 Facial Disfigurement - S41


Section 41 of the 1971 Act provides for compensation where a member suffered severe and permanent facial disfigurement before 1 December 1988.

The maximum rate of compensation for facial disfigurement will be set by the date the facial disfigurement became stable.

Where the facial disfigurement occurred, or became permanent, after 1 December 1988, compensation is payable under S24 of the SRCA in an amount calculated under Table 4.2 (Facial Disfigurement) of the Approved Guide.
