A: He may or may not be depending on a number of issues. You need to speak with a workers' compensation attorney first who will let you know if you are covered. Depending on that answer, you will need to speak with a personal injury attorney -- who may be one in the same. But either way, you should not trust the person you were working for.

A: As the other attorneys here point out, additional information is needed. It would be helpful to know the capacity in which you were doing the work - employee, contractor, or other. Good luck
