the purpose of Workers Comps is so you cannot sue your company they are the go between has a workers comp caseworker contacted you for a recorded statement? did you file a work related injury form when it happened? any witness to the accident ? who took you off work ? your MD or the workers comp MD? you dont give enough details to figure where you are in the progression

Companies are required to have worker's comp insurance. If the insurance company turns you down you'll have to take it up with them not your place of employment. If you got hurt on the job because the company was not following safety standards you could possibly sue and win however I doubt you'd win if you just had a common workplace accident.

If you accept workers compensation, you can not sue your employer. You can try to sue for an injury or you can take the comp. Not both. Be aware that workers comp claims are usually investigated and fraud is prosecuted.

You can sue for whatever dumb number you or your lawyer pull out of the air. But what you might win depends on the nature of your damages and whether or not they acted properly in trying to manage your claim. Most larger companies have learned to be pro-active thereby lowering what would otherwise be punitive damages for pain and suffering.
