connecticut only awards disfigurement to those bodily areas where there has not been any functional loss.

you should contact your union, they often have arrangements with specialty lawyers for areas like workers compensation.
you can find out more about Connecticut comp benefits here

What Now, What Now.? Sorry I had too..

But I just want to welcome you to the forum. Do some reading here as I have you will learn lots from these good people... I do want to say I'm sorry to hear of your problems I was on ttd as well and never got any kind of raise due to cost of living but maybe our state laws are different..
I have not been through that my self yet but I too have some nasty scars. Mine are probably total about 60 inches worth, but have been told if they are visable and would cause wage loss or from permitting you to keep or get a job then they would consider it to be figured in. I have 2 scars accross my fore head wich lead behind my left ear, Ugly as all heck but still am modeling for the chipndales.
But then again Wisconsin laws may be different...........
----I do wish you the best of luck, and at these times a lot of people dont have jobs and have children to care for--- It is hard to cope sometimes...................God Bless.

I don't think any WC pays for cost of living. In IL WC is figured on your 52 weeks pay before you were injuried and no cost of living increases. Also here your lawyer can only get a share of the money over what is offered to you before you hire one and it looks like you might want to get one long before you are talking about settling your case. You want open medical and I'm not sure in your state but you will need a lawyer to get that. One questions is why do you think a lawyer is getting money they don't deserve? A good lawyer is worth every penny he gets, I can understand you want as much as you can get but remember WC is not set up to make anybody rich. Sorry for your injury and I hope some of what I said will help. Good luck
