When a work-related injury results in a severed limb, a required surgical amputation or the permanent loss of use of a limb or other body part, you are entitled to special compensation under the Pennsylvania workers’ compensation laws. This includes amputation or loss of use of an arm, hand, fingers, leg, foot or toes. Your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance covers all medical treatments, including surgeries and prosthetic limbs, as well as lost wage benefits. It also provides “specific loss” benefits, calculated for a certain number of weeks, depending on what part of your body was injured, even if you do not miss any work because of your job injury.
