Permanent partial disability

State ex rel. Hobbs v. Indus. Comm. | 2023-Ohio-1759 | 10th Appellate District | Decided: May 25, 2023
In employee's mandamus action to compel commission to increase his previously awarded permanent partial disability award (PPD), court of appeals adopts magistrate's decision denying the application for increase in percentage of PPD as not supported by substantial evidence of new and changed circumstances, R.C. 4123.57(A), where the record does not reflect that employee underwent any medical treatment since 2002, that his condition became disabling following his last treatment, or that the claim was amended to include an additional medical condition, nor does the record support employee's contention that he testified that his medical condition was worsening since no such testimony appears in the record.
