Court: TN Workers Comp Appeals Board

Attorneys 1:

Stephen K. Heard, Nashville, Tennessee, for the employer-appellant, YRC, Inc.

Attorneys 2:

Michael P. Fisher, Nashville, Tennessee, for the employee-appellee, Eugene Vercek

Judge(s): HENSLEY

The employer has appealed the trial court’s interlocutory order for medical benefits, asserting the medical proof was insufficient for the court to find that the employee will likely prevail at trial in establishing a compensable aggravation of his pre-existing degenerative shoulder condition. Having carefully reviewed the record, we affirm the trial court’s decision and remand the case for further proceedings as may be necessary.
