Supreme Court to revise disability evaluation criteria
By Kim Eun-jung
SEOUL, Sept. 9 (Yonhap) -- Compensation for physical disabilities caused by industrial or traffic accidents will be increased, as the Supreme Court is moving to revise its guidelines for calculating damages in lawsuits, court officials said Thursday.

Under the new guidelines reviewed by the top court, the rate of labor capability loss for those who lose both arms in an accident will be raised from the current range of 75-88 percent to 89-95 percent. The corresponding rate for those who lose both legs will be readjusted from 58-83 percent to 67-81 percent.
