Work Comp Disfigurement Benefits

  • Jon Koutcher
  • 06/25/2013

The Workers’ Compensation act allows for disfigurement benefits for scaring or other markings on the head, neck or face caused by a work accident or a surgical procedure related to a work injury. For instance, if you get cut on the face while working, you may be entitled to disfigurement benefits. Also, if you have surgery which leaves a scar, such as neck surgery, you have a claim for disfigurement benefits.


At Pearson Koutcher Law we have successfully obtained work comp disfigurement benefits for fire fighters burnt while at a fire scene, police officers cut and scraped while apprehending suspects and injured workers who have undergone cervical spine surgeries that leave a scar. We recently obtained a significant award for disfigurement benefits for a construction worker struck by piping on the bridge of his nose. You do not have to go out of work or be out of work to make a claim for disfigurement benefits.
If you have a scar, or other markings on your head, neck or face, caused by a work accident or a surgical procedure related to a work injury, call the Philadelphia Work Accident attorneys, Pearson Koutcher Law.
