Workers’ Compensation – Asbestosis Claim – Timeliness – Average Weekly Wage (access required)

Tyson v. H. K. Porter Co. The deputy commissioner found that plaintiff’s asbestosis claim was not timely filed, but the full Industrial Commission failed to mention the timeliness of the claim when it awarded benefits for asbestosis. We affirm the award of benefits for asbestos-related pleural disease and colon cancer. We reverse and remand for further findings with regard to the timeliness of the asbestosis claim and the correct average weekly wage.
