Legal Question

Asked on: 11/07/13, 3:05 pm

I was helping my boss set up a temporary beam for a roof. He was using a tractor to lift the roof. I had to stop and grab a block to put under the beam . He set the roof down and then hit the hydrolics on the tractor and the forks came crashing down on my head a 8 foot fall and they weight at least 400lbs. I have a three inch split on the top of my head and suffered my first concussion. He asked me not to go to the er when it happend. But the next day when I went back to work my symptoms of concussion were so bad I couldnt work so I visited the ER. Its been almost two weeks he hadnt said anything about paying for the bills. Yesterday I asked him how he planned on handling it. He said that before he paid anything that I had to write a letter to the hospital stating that I couldnt pay for my medical bills and if they would please lower them. Only after that would he compensate me for lost time and medical expenses. I asked him to just file workers comp in a text and that I wasnt comfortable being dishonest with the hospital. He sent me a text back suggesting I take time off from work. Do I have the grounds to sue him for more than medical bills and the days I missed from work monetartily. I suffer from post concussion symptoms everyday Im being completely honest and gave him more than enough time to make up his mind on how to handle this. I feel I have been kicked to the curb and for that I wish to sue its just not fair.
