I can barly walk and not getting better and have to see a doctor today. what is the law and what can i do to get paid for the work me and the two other guys have done for this guy ?
Mr. Sweat has given you good information. You may have a workers compensation case, or you may have what is called an "uninsured employer case".
You need to consult with both a workers compensation lawyer and a civil personal injury lawyer immediately.
As the other attorney suggested, contact a personal injury attorney asap. Most importantly, you need to see a doctor.
The attorney needs to secure evidence. Search Avvo, call your state's trial lawyers association, ask someone you trust and respect. Interview (even by telephone) perhaps 3 attorneys. Look to hire the one you are most comfortable with and confident in.
You need to explain workers compensation as well.
