The legislature has provided a “schedule” of benefits in the Workers’ Compensation Law, for injuries to your extremities (fingers, toes, hands, feet, arms, legs), and also for the loss of hearing and loss of vision. The “value” of each of these extremities is different, and is paid in “weeks of compensation.” For example, if your fifth finger is amputated, having a “schedule” value of 15 weeks of compensation for 100% loss of that finger, you would receive 15 weeks of compensation at your “rate of compensation,” or compensation for the actual time lost while disabled, whichever is greater.
