Loss Of Limb/Loss Of Use

Experienced Workers' Compensation Attorneys For Schedule Loss of Use (SLU) Awards

An amputation, loss of limb or loss of use of limb can be catastrophic and alter all aspects of a person's life. If the injury occurred on the job, a worker may be entitled to a Schedule Loss of Use (SLU) cash award in addition to standard workers' compensation benefits. The award amount varies depending on the body part and extent of permanent disability.

At Turley Redmond Rosasco & Rosasco, L.L.P., we represent injured workers throughout Queens and Long Island. Our attorneys have the experience and ability to be powerful advocates for the entire claims process, from initial application to hearings and appeals before the New York Workers' Compensation Board.

What Types Of Injuries Qualify For Additional Disability Benefits

You do not need to have missed work to collect an SLU award, and your case does not have to involve a total loss of limb or any type of amputation. In most cases, SLU cases entail a permanent injury to a particular body part. Qualifying circumstances include:

  • Amputation of leg, foot, toe(s), partial toe(s)
  • Amputation of arm, hand, finger(s), partial finger(s)
  • Loss of use in arm, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, finger(s)
  • Loss of use in leg, knee, ankle, foot
  • Loss of use/permanent damage to hips, spine
