If this was a work related injury you need to IMMEDIATELY consult with a workers compensation attorney. These bills should have been covered by your employer's worker compensenation insurance. To preserve your rights you should also send a letter of dispute to the collections agencies until your attorney has a chance to address them. I would refrain from admitting anything until you have consulted your attorney. Best of luck.
