Hi mechiael, I'm so sorry to hear about your accident Sad

Well. I'm not an expert but I guess the amount of the loss will be determined as a percentage of your wage and the maximum level may get awarded to you depending upon the nature of the disability you have suffered.

the benefits paid for the PPD (permanent partial disability) will continue for the total duration of the disability.

The loss of index finger is listed under the schedule list for injuries eligible for the total award. Hence, IMO the OP qualifies for the 'Actual Award' under the list of PP-B.

According to the list, the qualified individual will receive compensation worth of $26k. However, you should get it clarified by your case representative or by the HR department of your office.

Pls let us know what you have found out. Take care!!

The state of Ohio allows the qualified employee to draw the compensation for around 200 weeks. However, thats the maximum time limit for which one can enjoy the benefits under the workman's compensation for temporary total disability.

The benefits will continue life long if the employee sufferes permanent total disability.

Again, for unscheduled partial permanent disability the compensation will be given for a time period of less than 200 weeks.

The recent rates show that you may be eligible to receive around $751 for 35 weeks for the total amount of compensation of $26,285.

Hope the information helps.

OP did you lose the finger or crush it? What is the prognosis? Will you regain use? all of these things enter into the equation...also was there (or could there be) any negligence attributed to you at all?
