Being burned or undergoing amputation as a result of a work-related accident can result in acute physical and emotional trauma. Not only is the victim subject to serious pain, but he or she must also learn to live with a permanent disfigurement.
If you or a loved one is left with a physical disfigurement following a workplace accident, workers' compensation may cover the necessary medical and psychological care. In these difficult times, be certain to speak with an experienced attorney to discuss your legal options.
Burns, Scars And Disfigurement Injuries
Injuries that result in burns, scars or disfigurement can pose unique challenges for the victims. While some may result in serious damage that prevents people from conducting their daily activities, others result in damage that is also emotional. Some of these types of injuries involve:
- Facial burn injury
- Scarring on the face and neck
- Burned hands and fingers
- Chemical burns
- Burns from explosions
Burns can be extremely painful, and may require long-term treatment or surgical grafts. Sometimes, scarring left behind after a burn injury can limit range of motion, which can affect a person's ability to work. Whatever happened to cause your workplace-related burns, scars or disfigurement injuries, our compassionate and attentive lawyers at Krasno, Krasno & Onwudinjo are ready to represent you and help you get all the assistance you need to move forward.
Understanding The Emotional Impact Of Disfigurement
Some burns, scars and disfigurement injuries — especially those to the face — cause an emotional impact as well as physical pain. It can be extremely difficult for those with a physical disfigurement to become reacclimated to their previous life. The emotional burden can prove to be overwhelming and lead to difficulties with body image, mental health and interpersonal relationships. Psychological symptoms, such as depression, require treatment just the same as the physical symptoms. When you work with Krasno, Krasno & Onwudinjo, we make sure we have a full picture of the extent of your injuries — physical and psychological — so we can fight for the full compensation you are owed. Making certain the victim of a burn, crush or amputation injury has the means to get the help he or she needs is of vital importance to our firm.
