Burns, Facial Disfigurement, Amputations — Philadelphia Lawyer

Pennsylvania Injured Worker Lawyer

Glass MakerWhen a person suffers facial injury and disfigurement, burn injury or an amputation, these are serious, traumatic injuries that can be extremely challenging for the injured worker. There is trauma related to disfigurement and burns that cannot be easily wiped away or healed. If you suffered scarring, burns or an amputation injury, you may have a right to medical benefits that can include reconstructive surgery, plastic surgery or grafting surgery. Other medical benefits may include treatment with a psychiatrist or psychologist, pain management, the cost of retrofitting a house to accommodate your needs, orthotics and therapy for the trauma.

We have been successful in assisting workers across virtually every industry who have suffered a broad range of injuries, including:

  • Veterinary technicians (vet techs) who have suffered egregious scars after being mauled by dogs
  • Factory workers who have suffered amputations from machinery accidents
  • Warehouse workers who have had their legs crushed after being run over by a forklift
  • Electrical workers who have suffered burns from electrical accidents
  • Workers who have suffered severe burns, including chemical burns due to chemical explosions, printing solvent accidents and other kinds of accidents
  • Workers who have lost an eye or their hearing as a result of an accident at work
  • Other injuries, including back, neck and spine injury, and nerve damage

If you or a loved one has suffered burns, scars or disfigurement in a work accident, you or your loved one may be able to pursue workers’ compensation claim. We’re here to help.

While it is impossible to put a value on the loss of an eye and what that can mean to a person, this is indeed what workers’ compensation does. There is a fee schedule that the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation uses to determine the “value” of a specific loss claim. This is why it is very important for you to have an attorney who understands all the nuances relating to these inhumane fee schedules and who can work to make your case more than just a number.

When you are facing difficulties from a traumatic workplace injury, you don’t need a company doctor telling you that your injury is not serious and that you can go back to work even though you are still in pain. And you don’t need the insurance carrier attempting to terminate or close your case without properly advising you of your rights under the law. Yet this is exactly what workers’ compensation insurers will do. You need someone in your corner who knows how to aggressively assert your rights.

All initial consultations are free, and we work on a contingent basis, which means that we only get paid if we win a recovery for you.
