When a Work Injury Leads to a Loss of Body Part

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.

If you or someone you know has suffered a loss of a limb on the job, the first step you should take is to contact one of our experienced workers’ compensation attorneys right away. We will help you maximize your recovery and ensure you are being compensated completely for your loss.
