Under Colorado workers’ compensation law, a loss of limb may be determined to be a whole person disability or an extremity disability. The law treats the loss of an arm or leg because of amputation differently than the loss of the use of an arm or leg.

There are two ways to determine Colorado disability ratings: extremity and whole person. If a limb is amputated, the disability is considered to be whole person. If a limb is attached but unusable, it may be categorized as a whole person disability.

We know that the loss of a limb affects the whole person — even when that loss does not include amputation.
