County of Buchanan Sch. Bd. v. Horton
In County of Buchanan Sch. Bd. v. Horton, 35 Va. App. 26, 29, 542 S.E.2d 783, 784-85 (2001), the commission awarded the employee benefits for an injury resulting from a fall while attempting to descend some steps because her heel caught.
While the commission found no defect in the step upon which the employee fell, it awarded benefits because a condition of the employment caused the injury.
The Court reversed the commission's finding because there was no evidence that a condition of the employment caused the employee's fall.
