We hope you find this summary of the appellate-level cases pertaining to New York Workers’ Compensation proceedings for the second half of 2022 and first half of 2023 useful.
These summaries are meant to be a carrier-centric review of the appellate cases that act as binding precedent on the Workers’ Compensation Board. Garden variety, repetitive, and hyper-specialized cases are not summarized here. It should be noted that all cases have their own individual fact patterns which may impact how or even whether a particular set of statutes or cases apply to a given matter. Consequently, these summaries are intended for general use only and are not intended as legal advice or instruction and you should discuss questions of law with your legal representative.
