Q: Has Workers Compensation in California been sued and charged for murder or attempted murder?
Workers Comp Adjusters attend physician/doctor appointments and direct medical care. Those directions and restrictions on medical care are serious enough to cause death.
E.g. not authorizing evaluation and treatment for a serious skull and brain injury that is known to cause death if left untreated. Bleeding brain. Swelling brain. Herniation into the spine that depresses the breathing center. The person lived only by a fluke. All standards of care warrant immediate treatment for the evidence of brain and spine injury. The patient was sent home without care even though there was visible cerebral spinal fluid leaking from ears and nose. Work Comp adjusters followed the patient to appointments to block care and dictate documentation to hide serious life threatening injuries.
