Ackley v. Labor Commission, 2021 UT App 42 (Apr. 15, 2021)

Apr 15, 2021

In this appeal from the Labor Commission’s denial of worker’s compensation benefits, the court of appeals set aside the Commission’s decision and instructed it to revisit the claim under the idiopathic fall doctrine.  In holding that the idiopathic fall doctrine applies to the plaintiff’s fall, the court evaluated and explained the different legal causation standards for workplace falls that apply depending on the cause of the fall.
