It depends on the cause of the injury. If, for example you slip on a just-mopped, wet floor and bust your behind, and there was no warning that it was wet, then the company might be liable for your medical expenses because of their negligence. But, if you are lifting heavy objects as part of your job and you hurt your back, that would be covered under Workman's Compensation.

Usually the Daycare would have something about that in their policy, and most often Daycares will have an insurance for that type of thing (injuries to children). Sometimes their insurance will not cover a major accident or injury though. If not, the parents or guardians of the child would be responsible for the medical treatment, but if it was a serious situation you could take it to court and/or sue the company, or put in a formal complaint.

Once he says that the doctors will not treat him for those injuries because they can't bill med insurance.. Medical insurance companies don't want to be paying for injuries that happened on an auto.
