Supplementary notes

ProPublica researched laws for all 50 states, the District of Columbia and the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act to calculate the maximum benefit injured workers can receive for the total loss or amputation of various body parts. Researchers then checked their calculations with state officials, attorneys and judges in those states. The benefit, often known as “permanent partial disability,” is in addition to temporary wage-replacement benefits and is intended to compensate workers who’ve suffered severe injuries, but can still work in some capacity. Because these are usually the maximums, most injured workers receive less. For more information on the methodology please follow this link.
