Workers’ Compensation Benefits

Action Taken by Trial Court: The compensation court found that Appellee suffered a compensable workplace injury to his lower back, which entitled him to temporary total and permanent total benefits and future medical care.

Assignments of Error on Appeal: Appellant argues that the compensation court erred in finding that Appellee’s pre-existing condition was a compensable workplace injury and in misapplying the factors to determine Appellee’s loss of earning capacity.
