I was injured on the job and have been collecting Workers Comp since 2004. Now I have been declared Permanent Stationery by an AME Dr. My question is,
Being that I was injured over a period of time due to my employer not repairing a broken seat in a vehicle I drove. In fact the safety dept came down and verified the seat was indeed defective, took pictures and a couple of months later brought me a seat cushion! Subsequently I have neck & back damage that was verified by the AME & my Dr.And the injury has been deemed Industrial related. This occurred in California. Do I have a case of negligence? or have given up the right to sue because I filed for workers comp?
Thanks in advance
