Where an employer and insurer challenged an award in favor of claimant for a work-related injury, arguing that the claimant failed to provide timely notice of his lower back injury, the judgment is affirmed because even though the claimant did not include his address in the report of injury, the employer had actual knowledge of the injury and did not show prejudice, and the record did not show that the employer asked for clarification of the commission’s factual summary or any additional findings of fact, so the commission did not err by failing to make specific factual findings.
Judgment is affirmed.
