A-12-0744, Clint Sweet (Appellee/Cross-Appellant) v. OPPD(Appellant/Cross-Appellee)
Nebraska Workers’ Compensation Court
Attorney for Appellant: James L. Quinlan (Fraser Stryker PC LLO)
Attorney for Appellee: Timothy Dowd (Dowd Howard & Corrigan, LLC)
Workers’ Compensation Action: Loss of Earning Capacity
Action Taken by Trial Court: The trial court determined that the appellee suffered an accident in the scope and course of his employment with OPPD, was entitled to temporary and permanent disability, and suffered a 35% loss of earning capacity.
Assignments of Error on Appeal: The appellant assigns that the trial court erred by finding that the accident caused the diskectomy; relying upon certain medical evidence; finding that the appellee had a 35% loss of earning capacity; and failing to take into account the pre-accident amputation. The appellee cross-appeals asserting that the trial court erred by failing to order attorney fees.
