A-25, r. 2 - Regulation respecting permanent impairments

Full text
2. Where permanent anatomicophysiological deficits affect symmetrical limbs or a limb symmetrical to one that is already impaired, the average of the percentages of the anatomicophysiological deficits for both limbs is multiplied by an enhancement factor of one-quarter, up to the sum of percentages of the lesser damaged limb.
The average is obtained by adding together the percentage of anatomicophysiological deficit of each of the two symmetrical limbs and dividing the sum by 2.
The percentage so obtained is added to the percentages of anatomicophysiological deficits resulting from the accident.
Symmetrical deficits are established on a limb-to-limb basis: the upper right limb with the upper left limb and the lower right limb with the lower left limb. The upper limb includes the scapula and clavicle. The lower limb includes the pelvis.
