If an employee was injured in the course of his employment and the employer did not provide worker's compensation as required by law, then the employer may be sued in circuit court and liability will be presumed--that is the employer is responsible for the payment of all medical treatment, wage loss, any future necessary medical treatment, any disability pay and all other damages the employee would have otherwise been entitled to had the employer gotten proper insurance.

I hope this helps-
