Reeves reported a job-related injury while working as a clerk for Harrison Personnel Services of Houston. She claimed she was unable to work as a result of the injury, and Texas Mutual began paying income benefits to her.

Texas Mutual uncovered evidence that Reeves was working as a customer service representative for a Houston law firm and as a health education coordinator for a Houston health clinic while receiving income benefits.
