TITLE 34 - LABOR AND WORKMEN'S COMPENSATION
34:15-27 - Modification of agreement; review of award, determination, rule for judgment or order approving settlement
An agreement for compensation may be modified at any time by a subsequent agreement. A formal award, determination and rule for judgment or order approving settlement may be reviewed within 2 years from the date when the injured person last received a payment upon the application of either party on the ground that the incapacity of the injured employee has subsequently increased. If any party entitled to a review under this section shall become insane within the aforesaid 2-year period, his insanity shall constitute grounds for tolling the unexpired balance of the 2-year period, which shall only begin to run again after his coming to or being of same mind. An award, determination and rule for judgment or order approving settlement may be reviewed at any time on the ground that the disability has diminished. In such case the provisions of section 34:15-19 of this Title with reference to medical examination shall apply.
Amended by L.1952, c. 269, p. 919, s. 2; L.1975, c. 319, s. 1, eff. Feb. 20, 1976.
