Burns Scarring & Disfigurement Injuries

Burns, Scarring & Disfigurement Attorneys in 

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 The Law Firm of Webster & Carlton, 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:

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.

  • Why Do I Need a Missouri Workers’ Compensation Attorney?
    A workers’ compensation claim can take several months, even years, to resolve, especially if you continue to suffer from the effects of your work-related injury. Your employer and its insurance company will be represented by highly skilled attorneys who know how to exploit an injured employee. You need to level the playing field by hiring a Missouri workers’ compensation lawyer who will fight on your behalf.
  • What Happens If My Employer Denies Me Workers’ Compensation Benefits?
    In many cases, your employer or their insurance company will promptly pay any workers’ compensation benefits. But if they deny benefits–or stop paying them before you receive what you believe you are entitled to under the law–then you have the right to file a claim with the Missouri Division of Workers’ Compensation. An administrative law judge appointed by the Division will review your claim and either conduct mediation between you and your employer, or alternatively hold a formal hearing to determine your right to compensation.
  • What Kinds of Injuries Are Covered?

    Under Missouri law, workers’ compensation only covers injuries that arise “out of and in the course of employment.” This includes accidents that occur during your work shift. It also includes “occupational diseases” contracted at work, provided workplace exposure was the “prevailing” cause.

    Workers’ compensation is not necessarily limited to injuries suffered at your normal workplace. If your job requires you to travel–i.e., make deliveries or conduct on-site work with clients–you may be compensated for injuries sustained in the course of such travel. However, Missouri workers’ compensation law specifically excludes injuries sustained while commuting from home to work and back, even if you use a company-owned car.
