Court: TN Workers Comp Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Art Crews and P. Allen Phillips, Jackson, Tennessee, for the appellant Maytag Corporation d/b/a Maytag Jackson Dishwashing Products.

Attorneys 2:

Steve Taylor, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellee, Randall Norwood.

Judge(s): HARRIS

In this workers’ compensation action, the employee contended that he struck his head against the casing of a conveyor belt, causing permanent and total disability due to a resulting cervical strain and mental injury. His employer denied that he sustained any permanent disability as a result of the incident. The trial court awarded 95% permanent partial disability benefits. The employer has appealed, contending that the evidence preponderates against the trial court’s finding. We affirm the judgment.
