Mansfield v. The Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission

Illinois Appellate Court
Criminal Court
Case Number: 
2013 IL App (2d) 120909WC
Decision Date: 
November 21, 2013
2d Dist.
Du Page Co.
Affirmed in part and reversed in part; remanded with directions.
There is sufficient evidence supporting Workers' Compensation Commission's finding that claimant's low back condition after April 2004 was not causally related to September 2004 workplace accident. Commission awarded claimant permanent disability of 10% loss of persona as a whole, which was not against manifest weight of evidence. Claimant's income from her side business should not be included in calculation of average weekly wage as it does not represent "wages" earned while working for employer. (HOLDRIDGE, HOFFMAN, HUDSON, and STEWART, concurring.)
