Paramont Coal Co. Va. LLC v. McCoy (P)

Medical documents submitted by a workers’ compensation claimant support an award of benefits based on his permanent total disability based on pulmonary loss. The claimant’s medical evidence conflicted with a different medical opinion offered by the employer to the effect that the claimant didn’t suffer pulmonary function loss sufficient to qualify for permanent disability benefits. Viewing the evidence in the light most favorable to the claimant, as the prevailing party before the Commission, the record supports the Commission’s factual finding he could not perform manual labor in a dusty environment.

Affirmed.

Paramont Coal Co. Va. LLC v. McCoy (P), No. 0710-18-3, Oct. 30, 2018. CAV (Decker) from WCC.
