Case Summary

S-15-0722, Wilmer Interiano-Lopez (Appellant) v. Tyson Fresh Meats, Inc.

Workers' Compensation Court, Hon. Daniel R. Fridrich

Attorneys: Laura L. Pattermann, T. J. Pattermann, Harry A. Hoch (Gallner & Pattermann); Joshua J. Schauer (Perry, Guthery)

Civil: Workers' Compensation

Proceedings below: Workers' Compensation Court found that Interiano-Lopez had not shown that he was injured while working for Tyson and concluded that Tyson owed no benefits under the Workers' Compensation Act.

Issues: Whether Workers' Compensation Court erred when it 1) overruled Interiano-Lopez's motion to dismiss Tyson's counterclaim after his petition was dismissed, 2) found that he had not suffered an injury while working for Tyson, and 3) put the burden on Interiano-Lopez to prove that he was injured while working for Tyson rather than on Tyson to prove that he was not injured while working for Tyson.
