Court: TN Workers Comp Appeals Board

Attorneys 1:

Gordon C. Aulgur, Lansing, Michigan, for the employer-appellant, Metro Services, Inc.

Attorneys 2:

R. Lew Belvin, III, Chattanooga, Tennessee, for the employee-appellee, Marshall Beene.

Judge(s): CONNER

In this interlocutory appeal, the employer asserts the trial court erred in awarding temporary partial disability benefits after an authorized treating physician had opined the employee reached maximum medical improvement for his work-related injury. Following an expedited hearing, the trial court determined the authorized treating physician had later revised his opinion regarding maximum medical improvement, thereby supporting an order for additional temporary disability benefits. The employer has appealed. We affirm the trial court’s determination and remand the case for any further proceedings that may be necessary.
