Maximum Workers' Comp for Body Parts by State

This dataset, based on detailed analysis by ProPublica reporters, includes the maximum permanent partial disability compensation that injured workers can receive for various body parts in 50 states, the District of Columbia and the federal system.

Creating the data involved more than 600 calculations relying on 52 separate formulas. We 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.
