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 25, 2004. The hearing officer determined that: (1) appellant (claimant) did not sustain a compensable injury; (2) the date of injury is _______________; (3) claimant did not have disability; and (4) claimant timely reported the claimed injury. Claimant appealed the determinations regarding compensability and disability on sufficiency grounds. Respondent (carrier) responded that the hearing officer did not err in making the complained-of determinations. The determinations regarding date of injury and timely notice were not appealed and have become final.
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 no indication that the hearing officer failed to consider the evidence in this case. 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 ST. PAUL FIRE AND MARINE INSURANCE COMPANY and the name and address of its registered agent for service of process is
