JAMES TERRY JOHNSON v. AMERICAN TELEPHONE AND TELEGRAPH COMPANY, INC. D/B/A AT&T, INC. (TWCA December 20, 2011)
An employee suffered a partial amputation of his left index finger. Compensability of the injury was not contested. At trial, the employee argued that his disability award should be apportioned to the hand. His employer contended that the award should be limited to the index finger. The trial court agreed with the employee and awarded 52% permanent partial disability to the hand. The employer appealed. We affirm the judgment of the trial court.
