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, Jessie Upchurch.

Judge(s): ASH

The trial court awarded an employee 85% permanent partial disability to both ears. The employer has appealed, arguing that the trial court erred in finding the employee’s claim was not barred by the one-year statute of limitations in Tennessee Code Annotated section 50-6-203(b). We affirm the trial court’s determination that the employee’s claim was timely filed.
