I cut my hand on the job. While performing some work, I cut my hand with a razor that required 14 stitches across my palm and wrist..
Initially, I went straight to the closest urgent care facility to be taken care of. They filed their services under workman's comp. When I got back into the office, my boss had a talk with me. He persuaded me to change the workman's comp claim and tell the urgent care facility to re-work the paper work to say it was a personal injury so that it wouldn't blemish his perfect insurance record. (this is indicated on paper work)
At that time, I agreed because I felt he was an honest man, and I was under the impression that he would cover my medical bills. This happened last October, and I've recently finally payed the bill. It wasn't much, but my insurance was fighting it because of the inconsistent paper work.
My boss has yet to reimburse me a penny. In fact, I no longer work there now. my question is, can I re-open the case, or sue for re-reimbursement and possibly damages?
I worked for a company in southern California..
