    Default Amputation Benefits


    back in november i lost 1/3 of my finger to a work injury,i was told at the time that i would receive extra benefits because of this injury ,but only when when i returned to work.My HR rep told me that i would get 25 weeks compensation for the injury in lump sum or weekly if i chose.i told her that i wanted a lump sum because dealing with Sedgwick was a real pain in the butt and once i got the check i wouldnt have to talk to them again.i returned to work on 1/14 and since then ,no one will give me any information regarding these payments.i need some advice in this area.

    If they are ignoring you, you will have to file a Claim Petition for Specific Loss benefits.
