Court: TN Workers Comp Appeals Board

Attorneys 1:

Jana McQuiddy, Nashville, Tennessee, employee-appellant, pro se.

Attorneys 2:

Lee Anne Murray, Nashville, Tennessee, for the employer-appellee, Saint Thomas Midtown Hospital.

Judge(s): DAVIDSON

The employee has appealed the trial court’s dismissal of her claim for failure to prove she suffered an injury arising primarily out of and occurring in the course and scope of her employment. The employee alleged that she was injured when she slipped in liquid on her employer’s premises and fell. At trial, the employer moved to dismiss the case at the close of the employee’s proof, and the trial court granted the motion on the basis that the employee failed to prove by a preponderance of the evidence that she suffered 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 certify the trial court’s order dismissing the case as final.
