Permanent Scars & Disfigurement
Serious workplace injuries can leave you permanently disfigured or scarred in an embarrassing or even debilitating way. Workers’ compensation laws require separate claims for work-related scars, burns and disfigurement. An experienced Springfield workers compensation attorney can help you obtain the maximum compensation you deserve for the physical and emotional impacts of your injury.
Since 1979, Kanoski Bresney has fought for the rights and benefits of injured workers in central Illinois. Our experienced attorneys will work to get you the compensation you deserve. With offices in Champaign, Decatur, Macomb, Pekin, Quincy, Rushville, Springfield and Bloomington, we are also willing to meet with clients in their homes and in hospitals. We cater to your specific needs.
What are the Most Common Causes of Scars and Disfigurement?
While certain injuries and illnesses heal, scarring and disfigurement may be permanent. The most common work-place injuries that result in permanent scaring and disfigurement are:
- Chemical burns
- Electrical burns
- Fire/thermal burns
- Cuts and lacerations
- Surgeries relating to your workplace accident
Workplace accidents take a variety of forms. No matter what caused the accident or who was at fault, injured workers are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits and should reach out to an experienced team of lawyers as soon as possible.
Am I Eligible for Compensation?
We will determine your eligibility based on the size of your scar or burn, overall skin damage, debilitating effects of disfigurement and the emotional impacts of your injury. Our compassionate Springfield personal injury lawyers will ensure you get the respect, response and results ® you deserve.
