Thank you for your reply.

I am going to opt out of this question in favor of other experts. Please do not respond to this message, as doing so will take the question off the "active" list and delay a response from someone else. Very best regards.

No, there's nothing in the California Labor Code or the California Code of Regulations that legally prevents you from collecting on two separate workers' compensation claims simultaneously.
