More on schedule loss of use awards

In our last post, we began looking at schedule loss of use awards, which are available to injured workers who have lost full functioning of one or more body parts in a workplace accident. The way a schedule loss of award of use award works is that state law dictates how many “benefit weeks” the injured worker will receive.

Obtaining additional workers’ compensation for damaged/amputated body parts

Workplace injuries can range in gravity from mild to fatal, and include everything in between. It is important, of course, for injured workers to report all injuries promptly to their employer so that they are able to receive the workers’ compensation benefits to which they are entitled. This is particularly important in cases where a worker has been permanently injured.

One important exception, we noted, is when an employer commits an intentional tort against an employee. This includes offenses such as battery, assault, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and so on.

Asbestos is a fiber that was widely used for decades in many different types of materials from car and train braking systems to building insulation and flooring tiles. It was primarily used because it was inexpensive and is fireproof. However, if these fibers are breathed in by anyone, they can cause irreparable damage to a person's lungs and other organs.

All injuries have the potential to affect your ability to work. However, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) names amputations as one of the worst types of injuries a worker can suffer.

Is workers’ compensation the sole remedy available to an injured worker?

The workers’ compensation system is an important financial resource available to workers, and those who have been injured on the job should always apply to ensure they receive why they are entitled to under workers’ compensation law. This is especially the case because, in most cases, workers’ compensation benefits are the sole remedy available to workers injured on the job.
