How Much NJ Workers Compensation Insurance Would Darth Vader Get?

With the entertainment industry still a buzz after Disney announced that J.J. Abrams would be directing the new Star Wars film – an old debate has also resurfaced here in the insurance universe. How much NJ Workers’ Compensation Insurance Would Darth Vader get? Let’s face it, the man has lost a lot of limbs in his time, so it’s only right to ask how much money his injuries would be compensated for – especially in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.

As a reference, NJ Workers compensation is a type of insurance coverage that protects
your employees in case of injury or disease during the course of
employment. This includes medical expenses, lost income, rehabilitation, death benefits and more!

In Episode III, Darth Vader (Anakin Skywalker), loses 2 legs and an arm, as well as a myriad of other injuries. Below  are some “estimates” of what the Dark Lord would get, based on workers compensation cases in the US.

Loss of hair: ($1,823 – $11,750)

Facial scarring / disfigurement: ($1,823 – $103,730)

Severe arm injury with permanent disability: ($41,737 – $139,395)

Loss of both arms: ($256,103 – $319,319)

Loss of both legs: ($213,959 – $299,868)

Permanent disability to legs: ($29,581 – $89,149)

Heart
and/or lungs: ($5,673 – $159,659)
(Assuming that inhaling all that volcanic ash caused damage to his lungs)

Third degree burns – Literally 100% of his body
has been burnt. Based on two cases of victims who suffered from large scale
burns 
In the United States they were awarded $2.5 million – $3 million!

Without getting into the extreme details, or stipulations of NJ Worker’s Compensation law – it’s safe to assume that Darth Vader would get a pretty penny from all the injuries he had suffered. The lesson learned here is that whether you use the force for good or evil make sure your “Empire” or Republic” is covered with NJ workers compensation insurance!
