Court: TN Workers Comp Appeals Board

Attorneys 1:

George Todd East, Kingsport, Tennessee, for the employee-appellant, Giovanna Meier.

Attorneys 2:


Jess Maples, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the employer-appellee, Lowe’s Home Centers, Inc.

Judge(s): DAVIDSON

In this interlocutory appeal, the employee alleges suffering an injury to her back while moving bags of concrete in the course and scope of her employment. The employer denied the claim as not being work-related. Following an expedited hearing, the trial court ruled that the employee presented insufficient evidence she was likely to succeed at a trial on the merits in establishing an injury arising primarily out of and in the course and scope of her employment. The employee has appealed. We affirm the trial court’s decision and remand the case.
