|Docket Number:||DIA Board No. 050421-00|
- Employee: Wayne Houghton
- Employer: Maaco Auto Parts, Inc.
- Insurer: Utica Mutual
CARROLL, J. The employee appeals from a decision in which an administrative judge denied and dismissed his claim for workers’ compensation benefits, based on the judge’s conclusion that the employee had not suffered the cumulative industrial back injury as claimed. The employee was not incapacitated by his back injury until his condition was worsened by a non-work-related lifting incident at home. Because the decision is contrary to law, we reverse. See G. L. c. 152, § 11C.
