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 August 31, 2004. The hearing officer determined that: (1) respondent (claimant) sustained a compensable injury on ____________; (2) claimant had disability resulting from the compensable injury of ____________, for the period beginning on September 30, 2003, and continuing through April 10, 2004; and (3) the compensable injury of ____________, included a rotator cuff tear in the left shoulder and an injury to the left biceps. Appellant (self-insured) appealed the determinations on sufficiency grounds. Claimant responded that the hearing officer did not err in making his determinations.


We affirm.

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. 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.
