Court of Appeals Denies Substantial Aggravation Claim

In Strickler v. City of Columbus, 2014-Ohio-1380, a police officer filed a claim for substantial aggravation of pre-existing osteoarthritis of the right knee, which was disallowed administratively.  The claimant appealed to court, and after a bench trial, the trial court also disallowed the substantial aggravation condition because there was no evidence, before or after the injury, that the osteoarthritis predated the injury.  The court of appeals affirmed the trial court’s decision.  Read the full decision here.
