Esquivel v. Worker's Comp. Appeals Bd., No. D054197

A ruling reversing a workers' compensation judge's findings and awards in favor of claimant is affirmed where the Worker's Compensation Appeals Board did not err in concluding that claimant's new injuries are not compensable under the Worker's Compensation Act because they clearly occurred outside the reasonable geographic area of her employer's compensability risk.
