Workers’ Compensation Claims Focused On Legs, Feet, Arms And Hand Injuries
New state permanency guidelines enacted on January 1st, 2012, will determine benefit amounts and the number of weeks an injured worker will receive them. Legs, feet and arms have different values as far as the length of time benefits are received is concerned. Age, educational levels, language ability and the transferability of existing work skills play a factor in the formulas.
Regardless of those changes, doctors still make determinations by providing the Workers’ Compensation Board with detailed information involving:
- Functional evaluations
- Motion restrictions
- Test results
- Objective observations
- Surgery results
- X-ray reports
Once a percentage of loss is determined related to the work injury, the injured party is provided benefits for a set amount of weeks. However, if you are able to return to work earlier, you will still receive benefits for those remaining weeks. For many of our clients, they come out ahead financially.
