Opinion

PER CURIAM.

After Stephen Byrd was injured on the job, he sued his employer, Central Freight Lines, Inc. Central was not a workers’ compensation insurance subscriber. The jury returned a verdict awarding Byrd $50,000 in damages. But after offsetting undisputed credits to Central of $104,698.85 *448 based on payments Central made for Byrd’s medical expenses and salary after his injury, the trial court entered a take-nothing judgment. The court of appeals affirmed. Id. at 260.
