Updated Magistrate Disposition Statistics

Workers’ Compensation Agency (WCA) releases magistrate disposition statistics through August 31, 2018.

Magistrates decide facts and law for each contested workers’ compensation case. Their backgrounds shape how they view witness testimony and medical evidence.

We think it is important to know disposition statistics. This data is critical when evaluating a case for trial or settlement.

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