Court: TN Workers Comp Appeals Board

Attorneys 1:

Roxanna Marie Hazy Kelso, Charleston, Tennessee, employee-appellant, pro se.

Attorneys 2:

Gordon C. Aulgur, Lansing, Michigan, for the employer-appellee, Five Star Food Service.

Judge(s): DAVIDSON

The employee alleges that her bilateral upper extremity complaints, including carpal tunnel syndrome, stem from her employment as a cafeteria worker. The employer denied the claim on the basis that the statute of limitations had expired. After an expedited hearing, the trial court found the employee had filed her claim within the statute of limitations and ordered the employer to provide a panel of physicians. The employer appealed and we affirmed. Thereafter, the panel physician selected by the employee opined that the employee’s complaints were not related to her employment. The employer filed a motion for summary judgment, which the trial court granted. The employee has appealed the trial court’s dismissal of the case. We affirm the trial court’s decision and certify the court’s order as final.
