Additional Payment for Permanent Disfigurement and Scarring
The fourth and final benefit under Missouri Workers Compensation, which is in addition to the other benefits available to an injured worker in Missouri, is the entitlement to an additional payment for Permanent Disfigurement.
Thankfully, most injuries do not result in scarring. However, if you end up with any type of scar, burn, stitches, skin discoloration or other disfigurement on your head, face, neck, arms and hands, you will be entitled to an additional lump sum payment for that disfigurement and scarring, up to the limit set by the Law.
This also includes surgical scars on your head, face, neck, arms and hands.
