Claims for Scarring & Disfigurement
Workers' Compensation Lawyers Serving Taunton & All of Massachusetts
Sometimes, a workplace injury causes significant emotional trauma in addition to physical trauma. Scars to the face, neck or hands can devastate a person's sense of self-worth. Even if a person with visible scarring can function physically, disfiguring scars can change a person's life forever. Under workers' compensation laws, people who have sustained disfiguring injuries and scars in workplace accidents can recover compensation for these injuries.
If you or someone you love has been in a workplace accident, it is important to discuss your situation with an attorney. The lawyers and staff of Percy Law Group, PC, fight for injured workers across eastern Massachusetts. Our workers' compensation attorneys are devoted to helping men and women who have been injured in the workplace to recover the maximum benefits allowed under law. You will not have to be concerned about paying a lawyer to represent you. Our fees are paid by the insurers.
How Are People with Scars Compensated Under Workers' Compensation Laws?
Under Massachusetts law, individuals who have sustained scars to the hands, neck or face can receive a one-time lump-sum payment for their injuries. The amount of the payment depends on the severity of the scar, although there are statutory caps for damages. Many cases involving scarring also involve the loss of use of a hand, arm, leg or foot. The permanent loss of function or amputation of any of these body parts can result in an additional lump-sum settlement.
We understand the legal issues involved in these types of situations. We will pursue all of the benefits you are entitled to under the law, including your medical benefits, wage loss, and disability benefits. Additionally, we understand that time is of the essence after you have been injured. We will do whatever we can within the law to help you get your rightful benefits quickly.
