AGO 1954 NO. 277 > Jun 23 1954

Where an injured workman loses one or more limbs, it is not the responsibility of the Department of Labor & Industries at the expense of the accident fund to replace or repair artificial substitutes for injuries occurring prior to the effective date of the 1951 act, there being no language in the act which would indicate that it be given retroactive effect.
