My situation may sound trivial compared to other posts I've read here, however I was wondering if anyone had an opinion relating to my current question. I was injured on the job, requiring surgery for hernia repair. The scar is only 3-4 inches long. I have a surgical scar along my bikini line, but this new one slants upwards along my abdomen. Even though it's considered a "covered" area, am I due any compensation for the permanent scar and loss of sensation in the groin area. It's been 3 months since my surgery. I've gone back to work, but in a different position. Thank you. Live in Rhode Island.
