MARK EDWARD WARF v. ZION CHRISTIAN ACADEMY, et al.

Court:TSC - Workers Comp Panel

Attorneys:

Richard T. Matthews, Columbia, Tennessee, attorney for the appellant,
Mark Edward Warf.

Luther E. Cantrell, Jr., Nashville, Tennessee, attorney for the
appellees, Zion Christian Academy and Church Mutual Insurance Company.
                    
Judge: BYERS

First Paragraph:

This workers' compensation appeal has been referred to the Special
Workers' Compensation Appeals Panel of the Supreme Court in accordance
with Tenn. Code Ann.S 50-6-225(e)(3) for hearing and reporting to the
Supreme Court of findings of fact and conclusions of law.  The trial
judge found the plaintiff had suffered an injury arising out of his
employment, but found the plaintiff was barred from recovering
benefits under the Workers' Compensation Act because he failed to file
timely notice of the injury which he suffered.  We reverse the
judgment of the trial court and remand this case thereto for further
proceedings.
