Workers’ Compensation Benefits For Loss Of Limb
Our lawyers handle cases involving:
- Arm loss
- Hand loss
- Finger loss
- Leg loss
- Foot loss
- Toe loss
These injuries are often the result of machine accidents. A limb is caught in or under a piece of heavy equipment. The victim suffers a crush injury. Doctors try to repair the damage, but ultimately the only option may be amputation of the limb. As a result, the injured worker may never be able to do the same job again. Vocational training may be necessary for a new job. This needs to be taken into consideration when pursuing workers’ compensation.
Wage benefits and medical benefits are at the forefront of most workers’ compensation cases. However, in amputation injury cases, specific loss benefits may also be available to compensate for what is likely a permanent disability. This may involve a lump-sum payment, rather than a weekly payment. Our goal is to make certain that you get the full payment you are entitled to for the loss of a body part.
