Court: TN Workers Comp Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Richard Lane Moore, Cookeville, Tennessee, for the appellant, TRW Automotive U.S., LLC.

Attorneys 2:

Aubrey T. Givens, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Curtis Morgan.

Judge(s): SUMMERS

The trial court found that Employee, a utility technician, suffered a work-related injury to his left hand and awarded thirty percent vocational disability. Employer has appealed, contending the trial court erred in awarding benefits for an injury to Employee=s left hand rather than to his left index finger. This 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. Because there is no evidence suggesting unusual and extraordinary hand conditions stemming from the finger injury, we reverse the trial court=s judgment.
