The workplace is a common setting where catastrophic accidents happen, resulting in permanent injuries, like scarring and disfigurement. These kinds of injuries not only affect the physical and financial aspects but can also take a toll on the victim’s mental and emotional state. Furthermore, a permanent disfigurement can significantly decrease one’s quality of life forever.
Fortunately, workers’ compensation benefits can help victims recover their financial losses and damages, such as hospital bills and lost wages. On top of this, victims with permanent scarring and disfigurement can also recover non-economic damages, such as loss of enjoyment of activities, pain and suffering, and mental anguish.
But before workers can claim these losses, employers or insurance carriers may need unbiased proof of their employee’s medical status and condition. This is where a plastic surgeon that conducts independent medical examination comes in.
