Workers Comp Evidence Requirements.

Labor Code Section 5502(e)(3) and 8 Cal.Code Reg. Section 10353(c) require the parties to list all exhibits on a pre-trial exhibit sheet. But neither section requires a party to list or raise any objections to the admissibility of such exhibits prior to trial. Rodriquez v. WCAB 75 CCC 919.

Failure to list medical reports, documents or witnesses precludes the party from using that evidence at trial.
