Q. Hello, Is there a deadline for submitting mileage paperwork for California Workers Comp case?
A: There is no deadline as long as your case is open. Also, it is easier to get reimbursed for mileage the closer it is submitted to the actual appointment.
Q. Can you sue your employer in addition to workers comp due to gross negligence?
A: If you are injured at work, you are subject to the Exclusive Remedy Rule — a component of workers compensation statutes that bars employees injured on the job from making a tort liability claim against their employers. The benefits provided under workers compensation are the sole remedy available to injured employees. When a worker is injured on the job, he or she can bring a workers' compensation claim. ... However, in some cases, the injured worker can also bring a third-party liability claim. “Third-party liability” refers to bodily injury caused to a person because of a negligent or reckless third party's actions or omissions. You may be able to sue the dog owner or other party if their negligence caused your injury. Good luck.
