In re Worker’s Compensation Claim of Michael D. Hurt

Appellant received a back injury while working as a concrete truck driver. Appellant subsequently received two surgeries to his back and could not return to work. The Wyoming Workers’ Safety and Compensation Division assigned Appellant a nine percent permanent partial impairment (PPI) rating. The Medical Commission sustained the Division’s PPI rating. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding that the Medical Commission’s decision that Appellant did not prove he was entitled to a higher impairment rating under the AMA Guides to the Evaluation of Physical Impairment was supported by substantial evidence and otherwise in accordance with the law.
