Court: TN Workers Comp Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Joshua R. Walker, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the appellant, University of Tennessee Knoxville.

Attorneys 2:

Timothy A. Priest, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Jeffrey A. Miller.

Judge(s): SUMMERS

A parking lot attendant injured his neck in the course of his employment with the University of Tennessee. He claimed that he was not able to return to his previous work and filed for total and permanent disability. The Claims Commission found that he was permanently and totally disabled. The University has appealed, contending that the Commission erroneously admitted certain testimony from the employee’s vocational evaluator. It further contends that the evidence preponderates against the finding of permanent total disability. 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. After our review, we affirm the judgment.
