Magistrate Disposition Statistics (Q1 2018)

Workers’ Compensation Agency (WCA) releases magistrate disposition statistics covering period 01/01/18 through 3/31/18.

Statistics provided by the WCA show magistrates gave 4 open awards, 3 closed awards, and 4 denials in the first quarter of 2018.

An open award is when a magistrate orders the insurance company/employer to pay continuing wage loss and medical treatment. A closed award is when a magistrate orders payment for a specific period. A denial results in no payment of any workers’ compensation benefits.

Magistrates decide facts and law for each disputed case. Their backgrounds shape how they view witnesses, evidence, and medical testimony. We believe these statistics are useful when evaluating a case for trial or settlement.
