Disfigurement, Scars, and Burns

Philadelphia Work Injury Law Firm

Few injuries are as personal as those that result in disfigurement or scarring. These types of injuries often require extensive medical care and treatment, both initially and again if the victim requires reconstructive surgery. Specifically for burn injury victims, it is important to seek specialized medical care. Burn injuries are susceptible to serious infections and other complications.

Individuals who have suffered a work injury resulting in scarring or disfigurement may be entitled to workers compensation for medical care and other damages. In some cases, an injured worker may be eligible for additional compensation for disfigurement.

Seeking Benefits in Pennsylvania

In Pennsylvania, workers who are injured on the job may be eligible for workers' compensation benefits for medical treatment, wage loss, ongoing medical care, and other losses.

In order for an individual to obtain workers' compensation benefits specifically for disfigurement, the affected area must be on the head, face, or neck. If the disfigurement has occurred on another part of the body, the victim may not be eligible for workers' comp benefits.

If the injury has resulted in disability, the injury victim may be eligible for Temporary Total Disability (TTD) benefits or Permanent Partial Disability (PPD) benefits. Additionally, Social Security Disability benefits may be available.
