Santiago v. Laidlaw Transportation, Inc., 5379 CRB-5-08-9 (July 27, 2009).
Claimant suffered work related injury and later injured in noncompensable motor vehicle and fall down accidents. Respondent argued subsequent injuries were a “second injury” relieving original employer of liability. CRB rejected argument; “plain meaning” of statute defines a “second injury” as a subsequent compensable injury; does not include noncompensable injuries. See also Santiago, § 31-294d, § 31-301. Factual findings, § 31-301. Appeal procedure, § 31-349.
