How much is an index finger worth? Workman's compensation?
I was injured at work on June,25th 2009 in indiana. I had an index finger laceration required surgery (tendon stitch or whatever). after my last doctors appointment he said it's about 30%. What does this mean in terms of my settlement? I seen the equation that is used to translate loss into a dollar amount, but I have no clue what it means. I would just like a general idea on how much. Thanks.

Yours would obviously be partial loss. Here is what I was able to find on one forum: The loss of the entire first finger results in an award of 50 weeks of TTD benefits plus a 6 week healing period under Section 306(c) (10) of the PA Workers’ Compensation Act. Section 306 (c)(15) provides that, the loss of any substantial part of the first phalange of a finger, or an amputation immediately below the first phalange for the purpose of providing an optimum surgical result, shall be considered loss of one-half of the finger. Any greater loss shall be considered the loss of the entire finger. The loss of one-half of the finger shall be compensated at the rate of one-half of the benefit provided for the full finger under section 306 (c) (16) of the Act. That sounds like your benefits would be half of that, so maybe three weeks healing and 25 weeks otherwise or something like that. http://www.workerscompensationinsurance.com/forum/showthread.php?25517-Loss-of-index-finger http://www.workerscompensationinsurance.com/forum/showthread.php?36248-Partial-Finger-Loss/page2 Also check here, and you might be able to figure it out from this information. I think it depends partly on how much you were making before your injury. http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Estimated_workmen's_compensation_payout_for_injured_index_finger_in_IL
