Run over by a car, truck fork lift or his fist? Why would a boss report to anybody if he did not have to. If you don't care about your job and you and you obviously don't file claim with nc Industrial Commission. Check their web site.You got a real injury or just your feelings hurt?

    If he did it because he was negligent, you have a workers compensation case. In Michigan, a Form 100 must be filed. If the boss will not do it, then go to a comp lawyer. If the boss did it on purpose, then you can go into Circuit Court and sue. In either event, speak with a lawyer immediately.

    If this is a work injury, you should ask your boss to file a First Report of Injury with the Workers' Compensation Commission. If your boss refuses to do this, you should call the Workers Compensation Commission yourself, and ask them for help in having a First Report of Injury prepared and filed since your employer refuses to do so.

    If you were working and were injured, you can file a worker's compensation claim. If you have not- notify your job. They will give you forms to fill out. If you were not working and you were injured, you can file a suit against the boss personally.

    Sounds like a worker's comp case. Could be a criminal case against the boss for running over you as well.
