Burns, Scarring & Disfigurement Injuries
If you’ve suffered a workplace accident resulting in burns, scarring and disfigurement injuries, you’re likely dealing not only with physical pain and emotional trauma, but also the possibility that you’ll never be able to work in the same way that you did before. Missouri workers’ compensation law makes special provisions for workers who suffer these kinds of injuries. At Morrison, Webster & Carlton, Attorneys at Law, our experienced workers’ compensation lawyers take on the challenge of fighting impassive insurance companies so you can focus on the fight to recover.
A Severe Injury Requires A Skilled Lawyer
A traumatic injury sustained at work can have serious consequences that may require long-term rehabilitation, time off work, and the pain and expense of ongoing medical care, surgeries and even occupational retraining. Burns are a particularly complicated injury. They are not only extremely painful, but often require long-term treatment, including reconstructive or skin graft surgeries. On-the-job burn accidents can take many forms, including:
- Thermal burns (heat-related)
- Chemical burns
- Electrical burns
Burns can also lead to permanent scarring, as can other injuries like traumatic amputations and surgeries required in the wake of a work-related injury. A facial scar can sometimes add emotional trauma to an accident. These substantial injuries can cause suffering, stress, uncertainty and considerable financial strain. If the injury affects your ability to work, it can also have a negative impact on your entire family.
