The jurisdiction of the reviewing court shall be confined to questions of law and, in the absence of fraud, the findings of fact by the board of review, if supported by substantial evidence regardless of statutory or common-law rules, shall be conclusive. Additional evidence required by the court shall be taken before the board, and the board, after hearing that additional evidence, shall file with the court any additional or modified findings of fact or conclusions that it may make, together with transcripts of the additional record. All proceedings under 28-41-26 — 28-41-29 shall be summarily heard and given precedence over all other civil cases. Appeals involving benefit rights shall be given precedence over all other cases arising under chapters 39 — 41 of this title. An appeal may be taken from the decision of the superior court to the supreme court in the same manner as an appeal is taken under 28-35-29, relating to appeals in cases under the workers' compensation law.
