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 June 22, 2004. The hearing officer determined that appellant (claimant) sustained a compensable injury on _____________, that he timely reported his injury; and that he did not have disability. An issue regarding who employed claimant was withdrawn by consent. Claimant appealed only the determination that he did not have disability. Respondent (carrier) responded that the Appeals Panel should affirm the hearing officer’s decision and order.
We have reviewed the complained-of determination and conclude that the issue involved a fact question for the hearing officer. The hearing officer reviewed the record and decided what facts were established. We conclude that the hearing officer’s determination is supported by the record and is 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 MIDDLESEX INSURANCE COMPANY and the name and address of its registered agent for service of process is
1000 HERITAGE CENTER CIRCLE
