Case No. 22-1328

Bridgestone Americas, Inc. and Old Republic Insurance Company
Charles Anderson

Petitioners appeal a district court ruling affirming on judicial review a decision by the Workers’ Compensation Commissioner awarding industrial disability benefits to respondent. Petitioners contend the court erred in affirming the award because: (1) respondent failed to establish the injuries to his arm and shoulder were causally related to his employment; (2) compensation for the injuries, if work-related, should have been based on the statutory schedule set forth in Iowa Code sections 85.34(2)(m) and (n) rather than industrially under section 85.34(2)(v); and (3) respondent did not establish the 50% industrial disability awarded by the Commissioner.
