Specht v. BP America, Inc. (6/30/99)

Two-year limitation of R.C. 4123.84 does not apply to a claim for residual condition. (A residual condition occurs when a problem in another part of the body results from an injury, in this case a psychological condition was caused by a back injury.) Claim for residual condition must be considered within the Commission’s continuing jurisdiction.
