David Timothy Lanehart, Lubbock, for Petitioner.
Julia F. Pendery, Dallas, for Respondent.
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.
