The Whittier mother of octuplets and six other children, including a set of twins, has filed at least two claims for workers' compensation, according to state records.
Few details were available about Nadya Suleman's first injury, which occurred in 1999 while she was a psychiatric technician at Metropolitan State Hospital in Norwalk.
In 2001, Suleman filed a second claim with the Workers' Compensation Appeals Board for "injury to neck, back and shoulders from auto accident on commute for medical treatment," according to records filed with the California Department of Industrial Relations.
The records list her earnings at the time of injury as "max," but provided no dollar amount. Suleman received treatment for the injuries and was covered by her employer or insurance company, according to the records. She was not covered by Medi-Cal.
