When an employee is deemed permanently disabled the Workers' Compensation Act affords benefits for the remainder of his/her life at 66% of the employee's average weekly wage plus a cost of living adjustment.
When an injury results in a permanent impairment, disfigurement or scarring on the hands, face or neck, the Workers' Compensation Act affords additional payments to the injured employee. The amount of the payment will vary depending on the severity of the impairment. The procedure for determining the amount of the payment is complex. A lawyer who specializes in workers compensation law can explain how the procedure and amounts are calculated.
