Washington Cnty. Sch. Dist. v. Labor Comm’n, 2015 UT 78 (August 25, 2015)

Aug 25, 2015

In this worker’s compensation case, a bus driver suffered two injuries, approximately four-and-a-half years apart, both of which required spinal surgery. To show a causal connection between an industrial accident and subsequent injury, the claimant must show that the workplace injury was a “significant contributing cause of the subsequent non-workplace injury, not merely a cause or a minor cause.”
