FIREMAN'S FUND INSURANCE COMPANY et al. v. COX.
46612.
BELL, Chief Judge.
Workmen's compensation. Houston Superior Court. Before Judge Hunt.
The State Board of Workmen's Compensation awarded the claimant a lump sum in lieu of the weekly payments previously agreed to by the parties and approved by the board. See Code Ann. 114-417. The superior court affirmed. Held:
There is evidence which authorized the board to find that a lump-sum payment would be in the best interest of the claimant; that the employee is totally incapacitated for work as a result of his disability and the disability is permanent. Further, there is evidence that the money awarded in a lump sum will be properly safeguarded by an investment in real estate by construction of a trailer park. See Hartford Acc. &c. Co. v. Black, 72 Ga. App. 182 (33 SE2d 278). The lump-sum award must be affirmed by the courts. Travelers Ins. Co. v. Williams, 109 Ga. App. 719 (137 SE2d 391).
