Compensation for Those Who Suffered Scarring or Disfigurement in a Work Accident
Some injuries never really go away. Perhaps the physical pain lingers. The mental and emotional anguish becomes debilitating. Serious scarring and disfigurement fall into this category of injuries, and those who suffer from these long-lasting, life-altering marks deserve compensation if someone else was at fault.
At Krasno Krasno & Onwudinjo, our Pennsylvania lawyers have helped thousands of injured workers over the last 80 years get the compensation they were due. We’ve worked with many workers whose injuries required amputations, left them with severe scars, and whose lives were forever changed.
We understand what you’re going through and are ready to make sure the state’s workers’ compensation system serves you the way it’s supposed to.
Facing The Prospect Of Multiple Surgeries
The treatment of injuries severe enough to cause scarring and disfigurement is, as you may expect, quite costly. Our clients frequently require multiple medical procedures to try to improve the quality of their lives.
In addition to the long-term emotional trauma and sometimes debilitating loss of confidence these injuries carry, clients come to us in need of major medical procedures, such as:
- Reconstructive surgery
- Plastic surgery
- Skin grafts
- Surgical removal of scar tissue build-up
Disfigurement Benefits In Pennsylvania
Under Pennsylvania workers’ compensation law, workplace injury victims may be eligible to recover disfigurement benefits if there is a serious, permanent disfigurement to the head, face, or neck.
These benefits are in addition to other types of workers’ compensation, such as replacement of lost wages, medical expenses, and specific loss benefits. The best way to ensure that you receive full and fair compensation is by enlisting the help of a highly experienced Pennsylvania workers’ comp attorney.
