Head Comment: With concurring and dissenting opinion.

Court: TN Workers Comp Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Randy N. Chism, Union City, Tennessee, for the appellant, Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company.

Attorneys 2:

Jeffrey P. Boyd, Jackson, Tennessee, for the appellee, David Hardy.

Judge(s): CLARK

Pursuant to Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 51, this workers’ compensation appeal has been referred to the Special Workers’ Compensation Appeals Panel for a hearing and a report of findings of fact and conclusions of law. In this hearing-loss case, the employer raises a single issue on appeal: whether the trial court erred in finding that employee’s workers’ compensation claim is not barred by the applicable one-year statute of limitations. We affirm the trial court’s judgment finding that the claim was timely.
