Ind. Decisions - Court of Appeals issues 1 today (and 14 NFP)

For publication opinions today (1):

In Jeff Reeves v. Citizens Financial Services, a 14-page opinion, Judge Crone writes:

Jeff Reeves sustained a back injury while working for Citizens Financial Services (“Citizens Financial”). Over the course of several years, Citizens Financial paid for a variety of medical treatments, but Reeves still experienced pain in his back that radiated into his left leg. After an evidentiary hearing, a single hearing member of the Worker’s Compensation Board (“the Board”) determined that Reeves had reached maximum medical improvement (“MMI”), had a permanent partial impairment (“PPI”) of five percent, and was not entitled to ongoing palliative care. Reeves appealed to the Board, which adopted the decision of the single hearing member. Reeves now appeals the Board’s decision, arguing that the Board erroneously concluded that he was not entitled to additional palliative care. Because Reeves has failed to identify what type of care he should receive and because the undisputed evidence does not show that palliative care limits the extent of his impairment, we affirm.
