Outlining How Workers’ Comp PPD Benefits Are Calculated
Permanent partial disability benefits are designed to compensate injured workers for the loss of a body part stemming from a work-related accident. The amount of compensation you are entitled to receive is based on a standard mathematical formula.
Each body part is assessed based on its importance to the overall function of your body. For example the value of your legs would have a higher value than your fingers. A snapshot of the calculations used in permanent partial disability claims is highlighted below:
- If someone lost complete use of a hand, he or she would receive 205 weeks of permanent partial disability benefits.
- If a worker sustained a 20 percent permanent partial disability to a hand, he or she would receive 41 weeks of permanency benefits or 20 percent of 205 weeks.
Injured workers’ permanency rate is affixed at 60 percent of their average weekly wage with a maximum statutory limit. Accordingly, if someone with an average weekly wage of $750 suffered a 20 percent disability to a hand, he or she would be entitled to a permanent partial disability award or settlement of $18,450.
