I am very sorry to hear about this situation.
While it is not possible to file a suit against the state of CA for the workman's compensation issue, it may be possible to move the matter into the judicial court for judicial review
and thus in essence "sue" the state that way.
What happens is that if the administrative hearings within the Dept of Industrial Relations and the Workers' Compensation Appeals Board do not lead anywhere and the administrative (non-judicial) appeals are exhausted, one can theoretically file a Writ of Mandate
, asking the COURT to review the decisions made. See here
for how to do this.
While there is no guarantee, sometimes the Court reversed the administrative rulings. An attorney is recommended, if possible.
