Court: TN Workers Comp Appeals Board

Attorneys 1:

Alex B. Morrison, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the employer-appellant, EAN Holdings, LLC.

Attorneys 2:

Darlene Noel, Memphis, Tennessee, employee-appellee, pro se.

Judge(s): CONNER

In these interlocutory appeals, the employer asserts the trial court erred in ordering it to provide panels of physicians to the employee, who had reported two work-related accidents occurring within ten days after her settlement of a prior shoulder injury claim. She alleged these accidents caused pain and symptoms in her head, neck, and shoulders. The employer denied both claims, asserting that the employee’s conditions were pre-existing and were not caused or aggravated by any “identified injury.” We affirm the trial court’s determination that the employee is entitled to panels of physicians, and we remand the cases for any further proceedings that may be necessary.
