New Workers' Comp Judge Appointed – But Second Injury Fund lists Shrink

This means we can expect that already overtaxed Second Injury Fund lists to grow in size and for adjournment of “recently” filed cases to be more likely.

Tompkins McGuire continues to maintain Second Injury Fund lists in every vicinage.  We are pleased to report that none of Tompkins’ Second Injury Fund lists are being cancelled or re-assigned.
