JOE TURNER v. BRIDGESTONE/FIRESTONE NORTH AMERICAN TIRE, LLC, ET AL. (TWCA March 5, 2010)
Employee sustained a compensable injury to his lower back. He alleged that he also sustained a mental injury as a result of chronic pain. His employer contended that the chronic pain and any mental conditions arising from it were the result of several previous injuries and surgeries. The trial court awarded benefits for the mental injury. The employer contends that the trial court erred by doing so. We disagree and affirm the judgment.
