| PHYLLIS I. SUITS v. M & M MARS
Harry F. Burnette and Doug S. Hamill, Chattanooga, Tennessee, for Appellant, Phyllis I. Suits.
Jeffrey L. Cleary and Dana L. Loftis, Chattanooga, Tennessee, for Appellee, M & M Mars.
This workers‚ compensation appeal has been referred to the Special Workers‚ Compensation Appeals Panel of the Supreme Court in accordance with Tenn. Code Ann. § 50-6-225(e)(3) for hearing and reporting to the Supreme Court of findings of fact and conclusions of law. The trial court awarded plaintiff 25 percent disability to the body as a whole as a result of sustaining a neck injury but dismissed plaintiff‚s claim for depression and a lung injury. On appeal plaintiff contends the court was in error in determining she had made a meaningful return to work and the award for the neck injury should have been larger. Plaintiff also cites error for dismissing the lung and depression claims. We affirm the judgment.
