• Work Injuries: Burns, Scars & Disfigurement

    While the physical pain of the actual injury can be tough to bear, some workers experience difficulties even after the physical pain wears away. What we’re talking about is the emotional stress that takes place when an injured worker is left with burn marks, scars or disfigurement due to a traumatic injury on the job. Even just looking in the mirror can mean reliving one of the scariest and most trying times of that person’s life. You don’t have to suffer through this without the help you need. At Brunton Law, we understand the emotional stress of living life with noticeable scars, burns or disfigurement, and we fight to get workers all over the Metro East compensation for their injuries.
