Amputation Injury Settlements for Injured Workers
Many employees in Indiana suffer injuries at work which require amputations. These can be especially common in factory settings where big presses or blades are involved. Losing any part of the body can have a large impact on the worker's life. It is important to seek the knowledge of a worker's compensation attorney so you know what you are entitled to. Some of the losses by amputation are set by statute. Many insurance companies may offer a lesser amount than what you could be entitled to in an effort to save them money.
The Indiana Worker's Compensation Act provides specific amounts of recovery for the loss of fingers/arms/etc. Don't let the insurance company get away with paying you less than you deserve.
