Court: TN Workers Comp Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Ashley Yarnell Baskette, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellants, Mr. Bult’s, Inc. and Zurich American Insurance Company.

Attorneys 2:

Jay E. DeGroot, Jackson, Tennessee, for the appellee, Scott Strain.

Judge(s): CHILDRESS

An employee alleged that he sustained an injury to his back. His employer denied the claim. The trial court found the injury to be compensable and awarded the employee 30% permanent partial disability benefits. The employer has appealed contending that the evidence preponderates against the trial court’s finding that the injury is compensable. On appeal, the employee asserts that the award of benefits was inadequate. After review of the record, we affirm the trial court’s judgment.
