Every employer is required to have workers compensation insurance. Workers Comp is specifically for people injured on the job. So on these facts, he is responsible, and should refer the matter to his Workers Comp insurer.

    If you were an employee and your employer has three or more employees, and you got hurt doing the work you were hired to do, and you were not under the influence of drugs, alcohol or horse playing then the employer should pay for your medical care. That said, if your employer is not willing to pay for the medical care, you need to weigh out how important it is for the employer to pay. Your employer may decide he no longer needs you as an employee after you have healed from your injury. You should speak with a Georgia workers' compensation attorney. Good luck.

    WILLIAM L SANDERS, ATTORNEY AT LAW | William L. Sanders
    You are likely covered by Workers Compensation insurance, but you must see the company doctor. Ask the employer who is their W.Comp doctor. They are supposed to have a notice posted at work about this. If that does not go well, go see a workers comp attorney. Most do not charge just to talk.
