Court: TN Workers Comp Appeals Board

Attorneys 1:

Lee A. Walton, Sr., Brighton, Tennessee, employee-appellant, pro se

Attorneys 2:

Gregory C. Morton, Southaven, Mississippi, for the employer-appellee, Averitt Express, Inc.

Judge(s): CONNER

The employee alleged an acute injury or compensable aggravation of his pre-existing neck and back condition after jumping or falling from the back of a trailer at work. Following an expedited hearing at which the trial court declined to order the initiation of benefits, the parties proceeded to a final compensation hearing. The trial court issued a compensation order denying the employee’s claim for benefits, and the employee has appealed. We affirm the trial court’s decision, dismiss the employee’s case, and certify the trial court’s order as final.
