TWCA reviews compensability of injuries employees incurred while traveling from one job site to another

CALVIN D. ERVIN v. JONES BROS., INC., ET AL. (TWCA October 22, 2010)

This consolidated appeal involves two employees who were injured while traveling in a personal vehicle during lunchtime while going from one job site to another. The trial court held that the injuries were compensable and awarded permanent partial disability benefits. The employer has appealed. We affirm the trial court's holding on the issue of compensability. However, we modify the trial court's ruling on the extent of disability.
