This appeal arises pursuant to the Texas Workers’ Compensation Act, TEX. LAB. CODE ANN. § 401.001 et seq. (1989 Act). A contested case hearing (CCH) was held on June 21, 2004. The hearing officer resolved the disputed issue by deciding that the appellant (claimant) did not sustain a compensable injury on ____________. The claimant appeals, contending that the great weight and preponderance of the evidence proves that she sustained a compensable injury. No response was received from the respondent (carrier).
The claimant had the burden to prove that she sustained a compensable injury as defined by Section 401.011(10). Conflicting evidence was presented at the CCH. The hearing officer is the sole judge of the weight and credibility of the evidence. Section 410.165(a). As the finder of fact, the hearing officer resolves the conflicts in the evidence and determines what facts have been established. We conclude that the hearing officer’s decision on the disputed issue is supported by sufficient evidence and is not so against the great weight and preponderance of the evidence as to be clearly wrong and unjust. Cain v. Bain, 709 S.W.2d 175 (Tex. 1986).
We affirm the hearing officer’s decision and order.
