Where a claimant was awarded permanent partial disability benefits based on shoulder overuse syndrome, an occupational disease, the award is affirmed because occupational diseases are compensable injuries under Section 287.067, and the Labor and Industrial Relations Commission properly found that shoulder overuse syndrome qualified as a “subsequent compensable injury.”
Judgment is affirmed.
