SB 1105 - This act modifies certain definitions pertaining to workers' compensation. It provides that an injury is work- related if work was the dominant substantial factor in the cause of injury. It excludes personal health conditions and injury resulting from idiopathic causes. Recovery is not allowed for aggravation of a preexisting condition except to the extent that the work-related injury causes increased disability. Awards shall be reduced by the amount of permanent partial disability determined to be preexisting.
