State, ex rel. OSU v. Allen, 2004-Ohio 3839

The Ohio Supreme Court agreed with our challenge of a permanent total disability award and vacated the award.  The Court found that the evidence relied upon by the Industrial Commission was flawed and not submitted in a timely fashion.  The client saved a considerable amount of money as the order that the claimant be awarded lifetime disability was vacated.  The decision reaffirmed the principle that the Industrial Commission was obligated to follow its own rules when adjudicating permanent total disability matters.
