PAIN AND SUFFERING: Do you get pain and suffering damages in a San Diego Work Comp Claim?

No, you do not get pain and suffering damages in a California Work Comp Case.  This is one of the major differences between a work comp claim and civil personal injury case.  There is one slight exception:  if you were injured at work by a third party not connected to your employer, then you have the right to pursue pain and suffering damages against the third party who caused your injury at the same time you get to pursue your work comp claim.
