Court: TN Workers Comp Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Stephen K. Heard and Adam O. Knight, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellants, Pro Logistics and Cherokee Insurance Company

Attorneys 2:

Donald D. Zuccarello and Marshall H. McClarnon, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Johnnie Hudson

Judge(s): ASH

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. The trial court found the employee suffered compensable injuries to his neck and back stemming from a motor vehicle accident and awarded him 54% permanent partial disability to the body as a whole. The employer has appealed, asserting the trial court’s award is excessive. Having carefully reviewed the record, we reverse the trial court’s judgment with respect to the impairment to the cervical spine and affirm in all other respects.
