Who are BL Claims Solicitors

BL Claims Solicitors specialise in personal injury, clinical negligence and travel claims, providing our clients with hands-on support, nationally.

We are rated as one of the top firms in the UK and believe in speaking to our clients in jargon-free language and ensuring you're speaking to a highly qualified lawyer right from the outset

As part of these claims we can seek to recover the cost of camouflage make up which is what I did in my case of  "Amanda" who sustained scarring to her forearms as a result of hot soup spilling on her at work.

I was looking for the British Red Cross Skin Camouflage service online today, which is now administered by Changing Faces. This is now the official home of skin camouflage.

The programme was established in 1975 by the Red Cross and since then it has helped tens of thousands of people to grow in confidence and independence. It is a voluntary service which helps people to self apply specialist cover creams for scars. These are fully waterproof.   At the moment the website says that from 1 April 2013 they will only be accepting referrals online and from Health Practitioners only. Self-referrers have been suspended at present owing to the high demand for the service.

If you have been affected by scarring you may wish to consider asking your GP for a referral to be able to try some camouflage make up.
