Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board to Hear Appellate Arguments at NSL

The Tennessee Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board will hear appellate arguments in two cases at Nashville School of Law at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, July 10. All are invited to attend.

A docket is available here and the trial court decisions are here.

The first case that will be argued, Bullard v. Facilities Performance Group, involves an employee who was injured when she missed a step and fell leaving the building she had just cleaned for her employer.  The employer denied her workers’ compensation claim on the basis that the fall was due to an unknown cause and was not related to the employment.  The trial court found the steps on which the employee fell were a hazard of her employment, making her fall work-related.  The employer has appealed, arguing that the fall and resulting injuries are not causally related to the employment.
