5948 - Frankie Padgett v. Cast and Crew Entertainment Services, Inc.

Cast and Crew Entertainment Services (Cast and Crew) and American Zurich Insurance Company (Carrier), appeal an order of the South Carolina Workers' Compensation Commission, arguing the Appellate Panel erred in reinstating Frankie Padgett's (Claimant) temporary total disability compensation benefits for a 2015 injury. Appellants assert (1) Claimant's agreement settling a prior workers' compensation claim (the Settlement Agreement) prohibited his future employment with Cast and Crew; and (2) Claimant was paid more than 500 weeks of benefits for the prior injury and in TTD payments for the present injury. We affirm.
