Wisconsin Court of Appeals
Employment – worker’s compensation — permanent partial disability
Hooper Corp. and Travelers Property Casualty Co. of America (collectively “Hooper”) appeal from a circuit court order denying their petition to set aside a worker’s compensation decision of the Labor & Industry Review Commission. Hooper contends that the commission’s finding that Ronald Koerner suffered a permanent partial disability as a result of exposure to manganese at Hooper’s job sites was not supported by credible and substantial evidence. For the reasons stated below, we disagree as to the reasonable inferences that could be drawn from the evidence, and therefore affirm. Not recommended for publication in the official reports.
