Here are 302 pages of workers comp local decisions

The Office of Administrative Courts holds local level decisions in various locations around the state. They are placing these decisions on the OAC website each month. So for the month of July you can peruse through 302 pages of decisions. Please be aware that these are local level decisions and many of them are appealed. Still you can get the flavor of the cases being heard each month by reviewing these decisions. Cases involving permanent total disability, job termination, medical benefits, partial impairment, efforts to overturn the DIME opinion and much more are set forth. The names of the parties are not going to be revealed but the names of doctors as well as the deciding administrative law judge are noted. The breakdown for most of these cases is to list the facts being found, the legal conclusions being made and lastly the order itself.
