Workers Compensation and Scarring?

I have scaring on my shoulder from shoulder surgery on a workman’s comp case in R.I., can I get compensated for my scar?

In RI scarring is considered a separate element of your workers compensation claim. Once the scar is fully resolved, usually 6 months after the injury, it can be evaluated and a demand can be made on your behalf. The insurance company will usually want to measure and take pictures before paying out. Find someone who understands this to help you. Good luck.
