Court: TN Workers Comp Appeals

Attorneys 1:

David T. Hooper, Brentwood, Tennessee, for the appellant, United Parcel Service, Inc.

Attorneys 2:

B. Keith Williams and James R. Stocks, Lebanon, Tennessee, for the appellee, Cindy Hannah.

Judge(s): CANTRELL

In this workers’ compensation action, the employee sought permanent partial disability benefits for an injury to her hip and lower back. Her employer agreed that her hip injury was compensable, but denied that she had suffered a permanent disability. It also denied that her alleged back injury was compensable. The trial court found for the employee, and awarded permanent disability benefits for both injuries. Her employer has appealed, arguing that the medical evidence preponderates against the trial court’s findings. The 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 pursuant to Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 51. We affirm the judgment of the trial court.
