This appeal arises pursuant to the Texas Workers’ Compensation Act, TEX. LAB. CODE ANN. § 401.001 et seq. (1989 Act). A contested case hearing was held on May 12, 2004. The hearing officer determined that respondent (claimant) sustained a compensable injury on _______________; that claimant gave timely notice of injury; and that claimant had disability from July 23 through December 17, 2003. Appellant (carrier) appealed these determinations on sufficiency grounds. The file does not contain a response from claimant.
We have reviewed the complained-of determinations and conclude that the issues involved fact questions for the hearing officer. The hearing officer reviewed the record and decided what facts were established. There is nothing in the record to indicate that the hearing officer did not consider the evidence. The hearing officer could find from the evidence that Dr. O did document a change in claimant’s condition on July 23, 2003. We conclude that the hearing officer’s determinations are supported by the record and are not so against the great weight and preponderance of the evidence as to be clearly wrong or manifestly unjust. Cain v. Bain, 709 S.W.2d 175, 176 (Tex. 1986).
We affirm the hearing officer’s decision and order.
According to information provided by carrier, the true corporate name of the insurance carrier is AMERICAN HOME ASSURANCE COMPANY and the name and address of its registered agent for service of process is
CORPORATION SERVICE COMPANY
