Court: TN Workers Comp Appeals

Attorneys 1:

David J. Deming and Michael L. Haynie, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Youth Emergency Shelter.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter, and Alexander S. Rieger, Assistant Attorney General, Nashville, Tennessee for the appellant, Second Injury Fund.

James M. Davis, Morristown, Tennessee, for the appellee, Eddie Roy Davis.

Judge(s): ASH

The trial court awarded permanent total disability benefits to the employee for bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome. It apportioned the award between the employer and the Second Injury Fund. Both have appealed. Pursuant to Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 51, 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. We affirm the trial court in its award for permanent and total disability benefits for a subsequent scheduled member injury.
