HUANG v. HAUTE, B156345
The presumption of negligence in Labor Code section 3708 does not include a presumption that the injury occurred in the course of the worker's employment, and an employee seeking damages from an uninsured employer has the same burden of proof as an employee seeking workers' compensation benefits.
