On April 20, 2011, a young woman sustained a serious burn injury to her leg while working in Columbia, SC. The injury was bad enough to require treatment at the Joseph Still Burn Center in Augusta, GA. Even after undergoing treatment and therapy, the young woman remained scarred on her leg and foot.
Burn Injury Settlement for Scarring and Permanent Impairment
While South Carolina's workers' compensation law limits the amount of money a burn victim may receive for scarring, we were able to achieve a settlement that accounted not only for scarring, but permanent impairment as well.
Burn injuries at work are a frequent occurrence in Columbia and throughout South Carolina. If you have questions about the benefits you should received based on such an injury, call me today at 803-790-2800. You can also start a live chat to speak with a team member at any time.
