Court: TN Workers Comp Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Terry J. Leonard, Camden, Tennessee, for the appellant, Robert Morrow.

Attorneys 2: David T. Hooper, Brentwood, Tennessee, for the appellees, Mr. Bult’s, Inc., and Dallas National Insurance Company.

Judge(s): CANTRELL

Pursuant to Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 51, this workers’ compensation 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. In this case, it is undisputed that Employee sustained an injury arising out of and in the scope of his employment; the issue on appeal, however, is whether Employee carried his burden of proving that his work-related injury caused a permanent disability. The trial court found that Employee failed to carry his burden of proving any permanent disability resulting from the injury. Based on our review of the evidence, we agree with the trial court’s finding, and we therefore affirm the trial court’s judgment.
