Court: TN Workers Comp Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Steve Taylor, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellee, Thomas L. Keller.

Attorneys 2:

P. Allen Phillips, Jackson, Tennessee, for the appellant, Thyssenkrupp Elevator Corp.

Judge(s): HARRIS

An employee sustained a work-related injury to his back and leg and returned to work but eventually resigned due to his continued back and leg pain. The trial court found that the employee established a compensable injury, did not have a meaningful return to work, and awarded sixty-eight percent permanent partial disability benefits. The employer appealed, alleging that the trial court erred in finding that the employee did not have a meaningful return to work and in awarding excessive benefits. We affirm the trial court’s judgment.
