Example Of A Simple Dominant Hand Calculation
For this example, we assumed the injury took place in January 2010 and the employee is entitled to the maximum rate of $282.00. The permanent partial disability rate is either the maximum rate for year of injury or employees temporary total disability rate, whichever is lower.
(view Maximum Weekly PPD Rates for other dates of injury)
Injury: Amputation of right middle finger at the distal joint, right hand dominant.
100% of 8 weeks (per schedule) = 8 weeks
plus 25% of 8 weeks (for dominant hand) = 2 weeks
8 wks (amputation) + 2 wks (dominant hand multiple) = 10 weeks X $282.00 = $2820.00
