Skin Injury

Skin Injury Lawyers Pennsylvania

If you have been injured and ultimately scarred or disfigured in any type of accident you may suffer exponentially more than just the pain and discomfort at time of injury. In addition to the physical discomfort and pain, which may lead to temporary disability  and permanent impairment, there are often residual physical scars. Scarring can often times damage a person’s self esteem, self worth and self image. The emabarrasment of always having to hide or explain scars is often a longer term problem than the actual physical injury. Unfortunately, cosmetic  scar removal is not always available, affordable or cost effective. The Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation system and Pennsylvania Personal Injury Law recognizes that scarring and  disfiguring injuries are unique due to the type of physical and emotional damage they cause. Workers’ Compensation allow recovery for disfigurement that is  visible and  objectionable when clothed normally (even in a bathing suit). Disfigurment may even include a permanent noticeable limp caused by a work injury, bone injury or auto accident. As a result, pA Workers’ Compensation Law allows for additional benefits if you have been scarred or disfigured in a work related accident. A skilled Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania personal injury lawyer can help you obtain compensation based on your injuries.
