  • KY Loss of finger

    My boyfriend cut off his little finger on his right hand at work he had surgeory to re attach it, the surgeory was sucessful but he got an infection in it and spent a day and a half in the hospital on antibiotics it has healed, but unfortunatly he has lost his nail and lost mobility of it. The Physical therapist that he has been seeing seems to think that he will not regain total mobility of it. Our concern is that his boss refused to turn it in to workers comp and wished to pay out of pocket expenses, which he has done. But refuses to pay him for the time that he has to be off due to Doctors Apts. and physical therapy. Is there anything that we can do to ensure that we don't loose out on his wages?

      It varies by state whether time off for doctor's appointments and treatment are covered by WC or not. In my state, unless it is at the request of the employer or insurance company, time taken for doctor's appintments and PT is not covered as lost time. Employees must use their own leave if they want to be paid for their time.
