Amputations and disfigurements can change your life forever, affecting your quality of life and your self-perception. Workers who have experienced a loss of a limb know just how significant the event is in their life. From sports, to playing with their children to preparing meals—these types of injuries are devastating.
When an injury at work requires a surgical amputation or leaves you with a severed limb, or the permanent loss of use of a limb or other body part, you are entitled to special compensation under the Pennsylvania’s Workers’ Compensation laws. How that injury happened and to which body part it happened to, will determined the amount you’ll receive.
It is important to note, the specific-loss benefit is separate to other workers’ compensation benefits you’re receiving. It is also important to note that you can claim specific loss of use benefits even if your injury did not take you away from work for a long period of time. Examples of these losses include the loss of use of the following body parts or functions:
Eligibility for these specific loss benefits does NOT need to mean a full amputation or loss of the body part. Benefits can also be awarded if the body part has been deemed to have loss of meaningful value at home and at work.
