Applied Risk Services Inc. sued Kim Kardashian March 1 to subrogate for costs it incurred paying workers' comp benefits to a man who was involved in a car accident with her, according to the mynewsla.com website.
The lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, concerns a 2014 incident in Beverly Hills in which Kardashian ran into a vehicle driven by Rafael Linares while he was on the job for John Paul Co. Inc., a plumbing company in Van Nuys, which Applied Risk insured at the time.
Linares also filed a personal injury lawsuit last year in Los Angeles asking that Kardashian cover medical expenses and property damage. He also is seeking compensation for a “loss of income and impaired earning capacity” due to the car accident, according to earlier press reports.
The lawsuit by Applied Risk asks for unspecified damages for all of the workers’ comp benefits it paid to Linares for injuries related to the accident, according to the report.
