Attorney for Appellee: Melvin C. Hansen (Hansen, Lautenbaugh, & Buckley, LLP)

Civil Action: Workers' Compensation

Action Taken by Trial Court: The compensation court awarded Wilson temporary and permanent disability benefits, denied payment of certain medical bills, denied vocational rehabilitation benefits, and was silent as to future medical benefits and a late payment penalty, interest, and attorney fees.
