A: This is something that the employment law and workers' comp attorneys here would know best, but your question remains open for two weeks. In general, employees injured in the course of their employment usually go through workers' comp insurance for their medical expenses and lost wages. There could sometimes be more to it than this simple overview, depending on how an accident took place.

One option is to reach out to employment law/workers' comp law attorneys to see if they might offer you a brief, free initial consult over the phone to identify what type of attorney you need. You could search law firms on your own, or you could use the tab above, Find-a-Lawyer. Good luck
