When Can I Get My Scar Money?
When Scar Money Arrives
The Rhode Island Workers’ Compensation Act does provide for a separate benefit, i.e. a separate check and amount of money if you have disfigurement from the injury, whether that is a scar, a burn or some other deformity. Once you are at that point in time, your lawyer and the insurer will meet with you to view the deformity or disfigurement and try to agree on a number or a dollar amount that is fair.
