Workplace injuries that result in scars or other disfigurements can be devastating to workers and their families. Loss of limbs, burns, scalds, lacerations and other skin injuries are examples of disfiguring injuries. Scarring injuries often remain after a wound heals and may look significantly different than the skin surrounding it. Physical consequences can include pain, impaired movement and loss of limb function. In addition to the impact a scar or disfigurement might have on an employee’s ability to work, there often is an emotional and social toll as well. Victims often suffer from depression and poor self esteem. Extensive medical treatment may be required including plastic surgery, skin grafts, surgical removal of scar tissue, physical therapy, prosthesis and reconstructive surgery.
