Court: TN Workers Comp Appeals Board

Attorneys 1:

Ashley Patton, Columbia, Tennessee, employee-appellant, pro se.

Attorneys 2:

Jason A. Lee, Nashville, Tennessee, for the employer-appellee, General Motors.

Judge(s): DAVIDSON

This interlocutory appeal involves an employee who alleged bilateral hand and wrist injuries and bilateral Achilles tendon injuries related to her employment as an assembly line worker. The employer denied the claim. Following an expedited hearing, the trial court determined the employee presented insufficient medical proof to establish she will likely prevail at trial and denied benefits. The employee has appealed. We affirm the trial court’s decision and remand the case.
