Court: TN Workers Comp Appeals

Attorneys 1:

David T. Hooper, Brentwood, Tennessee, for the appellants, United Parcel Service, Inc. and Liberty Mutual Insurance Corporation.

Attorneys 2:

B. Keith Williams and James R. Stocks, Lebanon, Tennessee, for the appellee, George Hollars.

Judge(s): ANDERSON

In this workers’ compensation appeal the employer asserts that the evidence preponderates against the trial court’s finding that the employee’s injury was permanent. The employee, a package car driver for United Parcel Service, experienced two episodes of heat exhaustion while at work. The trial court found the heat exhaustion to be permanent and awarded benefits for permanent partial disability and the employer appealed. 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 reverse the decision of the trial court.
