Romans, State ex rel. v. Elder Beerman (10/22/03)

Amendment to R.C. 4123.52 relating to expiration of medical-only claim after six years of inactivity did not change length of time claim remains alive. Amendment changed definition of “inactivity” by providing that payment of a medical bill constitutes activity. Therefore, change was procedural and not jurisdictional and applies to claimant who was injured before effective date of amendment.
