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 July 8, 2004. The hearing officer determined that the respondent’s (claimant) _____________, compensable injury extends to and includes the lumbar disc protrusions at L3-4 and L4-5, and the disc bulge at L5-S1. The appellant (carrier) appealed on sufficiency of the evidence grounds. The appeal file does not contain a response from the claimant.
We have reviewed the complained-of determinations and conclude that the disputed issues involved fact questions for the hearing officer. The hearing officer reviewed the record and decided what facts were established. 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.
The true corporate name of the insurance carrier is ADVANTAGE WORKERS’ COMPENSATION INSURANCE COMPANY and the name and address of its registered agent for service of process is
CT CORPORATION SYSTEM
350 NORTH ST. PAUL STREET
