The Law Offices of Frank J. Dito, Jr.

Q:
I was told that since my injury happened more than 7 years ago and my case has been closed, my benefits would come from the reopened cases fund. What is the fund?

A:

The reopened cases fund was established to assume liability for any additional awards in workers’ compensation cases in which the application to reopen the case occurs more than seven years from the date of injury and more than three years from when your case was closed. The Fund is financed through assessments made periodically against all insurance carriers.
