The Court of Appeals of Virginia.

Counsel

Michael S. Bliley and Andrew M. Alexander (Siciliano, Ellis, Dyer & Boccarosse PLC) for appellants. M. Thomas McWeeny and Julie H.

Assignments of Error

  1. The Court of Appeals erred in finding that a claimant must only prove a structural or mechanical change to one body part in order for all injuries caused by an accident to be compensable.
  2. The Court of Appeals erred in finding that Appellee suffered an injury to her right shoulder, as opposed to mere transient pain
