Step 3:
Is the injury or illness a new case?

 
   
 
Determination of a new case

Consider an injury or illness a "new case" if the employee
has not previously experienced a recorded injury or illness of the same type that affects the same part of the body,

OR
 
the employee previously experienced a recorded injury or illness of the same type that affected the same part of body but had
recovered completely (all signs and symptoms had disappeared)
from the previous injury or illness and an event or exposure in
the work environment caused the signs or symptoms to reappear.
