Magistrate Disposition Statistics (01/01/2018 – 06/30/2018)

Workers’ Compensation Agency (WCA) releases magistrate disposition statistics for first half of 2018.

Magistrates decide facts and law for disputed workers’ compensation cases. An open award is when continuing wage loss and medical benefits are ordered. A closed award is when payment of some wage loss and/or medical benefits are given. Denials result in no benefits paid whatsoever.

Statistics for the first half of 2018 show 8 open awards, 9 closed awards, and 9 denials. We believe these statistics are useful when evaluating a case for trial or settlement. Here is a breakdown of current magistrates and their decisions so far this year.
