Court: TN Workers Comp Appeals

Attorneys 1:

David T. Hooper, Brentwood, Tennessee, for the appellant, United Parcel Service, Inc.

Attorneys 2:

Michael Fisher, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Sabrina Brown.

Judge(s): ASH

The employee sustained a compensable injury to her right knee. While recovering from surgery, she reinjured the knee. Her employer asserted the reinjury was an intervening event which absolved the employer of further liability for medical care or temporary disability benefits. The trial court found the reinjury was not an intervening event, ordered medical benefits, and awarded additional temporary disability benefits. The employer has appealed, asserting the evidence preponderates against the trial court’s finding. 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 judgment of the trial court.
