Magistrate Disposition Statistics (01/01/17 – 05/31/17)

Workers’ Compensation Agency (WCA) releases magistrate disposition statistics for first half of 2017.

Magistrates are responsible for deciding the facts and law for each workers’ compensation case that cannot be settled. Statistics for the first half of 2017 show just 3 open awards, 6 closed awards, and 11 denials.

An open award is when a magistrate orders payment of continuing wage loss and medical benefits. A closed award is when a magistrate orders the payment of some benefits. Denials result in no benefits.
