In Texas you have the right to file a claim for samages if they have no computer and no alternate insurance. If there is alternate employee coverage you need to check the policy. It may limit you to arbitration. If there is neither then you can sue and all you must prove is 1% negligence to win. Sounds like a good case. I would be happy to discuss it. 1-800-298-0111.

These cases have specific legal issues. You may have signed documents that will be used against you, so you need a lawyer familiar with these cases. I settled a head injury non-subscriber case late last year and just won an appeal in the Texas Supreme Court in another non-subscriber case where an arbitrator tried to dismiss the case on a technicality. So be sure to get a lawyer who understands what you are up against.
If your employer does not have worker's compensation insurance, then you can pursue a non subscriber case against it. These are typically good cases from a liability perspective and you have described what appear to possibly be significant damages, including a possible traumatic brain injury that needs immediate medical treatment. Please do not sign any documents that the employer asks you to sign without first having an attorney review the documents. This is important because the company can obtain a valid and enforceable post accident waiver of your potential claims against it. Immediately consult with an attorney who is Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. I have been handling these type cases for several years. We are happy to consult with you free of charge in the event you want to talk to someone. Good luck. www.urhurt.com
You have a nonsubscriber case against your employer. The potential problem is that 8 months have passed and you still need medical treatment. The other issue that you often run into in a nonsubscriber case is whether the employer will have the assets to satisfy a judgment against it. However, it looks like you have a case. You should make an appointment with a neurologist ASAP to address your memory issues. Good luck.
