If you’ve suffered an injury and were 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 embarrassment 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 Maryland Workers’ Compensation system and MD 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). Disfigurement may even include a permanent noticeable limp caused by a work injury, bone injury or auto accident. As a result, Maryland Workers’ Compensation Law allows for additional benefits if you have been scarred or disfigured in a work related accident. A skilled Maryland Skin Injury Attorney can help you obtain compensation based on your injuries.
