I am asking if it is possible, after an injured worker signs a CDA, if it is possible to take the insurance companies into a civil court??
Say for example, to small claims court or something to similiar....
To get out of this messed up W/C system, and to be able to recover "out of pocket" expenses??
All information would be greatly appreciated!!!

Don't sign anything releasing the dirt bags.
Sorry to say it is going to take way longer than you have patience for.
Find a lawyer who specializes in workman's comp. You didn't say where you are.
You didn't say what is hurt, can you function as a guard, ticket taker, estimator, accountant. With sergury do you think you could go back to 5 minutes before you had your life changing experience?
Beware the IME, and be truthful, they'll eat you for breadfast, that's how they make a living, beating up on people who stumble into the system, the Venus Fly Trap!
