JAMES ANTONY WILSON, SR. v. EAST TENNESSEE HUMAN RESOURCE AGENCY, INC. (Tenn. Ct. App. April 29, 2011)
James Antony Wilson, Sr. sued East Tennessee Human Resource Agency, Inc. ("ETHRA") individually, and as next friend and Personal Representative of the Estate of Callie Irene Wilson, on behalf of himself and all wrongful death beneficiaries of Callie Irene Wilson, Deceased. This suit involves a fall and injuries suffered by Callie Irene Wilson ("Callie Wilson") while ETHRA was in the process of transporting Callie Wilson to a dialysis appointment, and her death resulting from these injuries.
After a trial, the Trial Court entered its order on July 29, 2010 finding and holding, inter alia, that the ETHRA driver acted appropriately and was not negligent. Mr. Wilson appeals to this Court. We find that the evidence in the record on appeal preponderates against the Trial Court's finding that ETHRA's employee, Mr. Clabo, was not negligent. We reverse, and remand this case to the Trial Court for a determination of comparative fault and damages.
