Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Benefits For Amputation
Pennsylvania workers’ compensation provides two types of benefits for loss of a body part: benefits for the loss itself and benefits for missed time at work for healing. You are entitled to the loss benefits even if you do not miss time at work.
The following chart summarizes workers’ compensation benefits both for loss and for healing:
|For Loss of||You are paid this many weeks of benefits for the loss||You are paid up to this many weeks of benefits for healing|
You are entitled to the loss benefit even if you lose only a portion of a body part (such as a fingertip) or if you lose use of the body part. An experienced attorney can help you maximize your benefits. If someone other than your employer is responsible for the accident that caused your amputation, you may be entitled to additional compensation by filing a third-party claim.
