Re: Partial Amputation
You should receive TTD ( Temporary Total Disability) benefits until you return to work.
You are eligible for a scheduled loss award on the amputated finger tip on top of your PPD benefits afterwards.
See the schedule in the below link.
Temporary Total Disability
Exists when the employee, on account of injury, is unable to engage in any type of substantial and
gainful employment. Benefits are paid for the duration of the temporary total disability (TTD).
There is a one-week waiting period (seven calendar days) before TTD benefits are paid. If the disability
continues for three consecutive weeks, the employee is reimbursed for the waiting period. Employees
may collect medical benefits during the first week. Benefits are 66.67 percent of an employee’
s average gross weekly wage, but not less than $25 nor more than the statutory maximum.
Temporary total compensation may not exceed $130,000 per injury.
Permanent Partial Scheduled Disability
Exists when there is complete or partial loss of or loss of use of a body part, such as an arm, due to a
job-related injury. Compensation for permanent partial scheduled disability is limited to a percentage
of the following schedule. A healing period is available in cases of amputation. Benefits are 66.67
percent of an employee’s average gross weekly wage, but not less than $25 nor more than the statutory
maximum cap of $130,000.
Consult a lawyer to be sure you're getting a fair deal, retain one at the first sign of problems.
