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.

If a buddy is riding your bike with no insurance and hurts himself who covers the medical expenses?

Technically, your buddy covers the medical expenses. He might be able to have his medical insurance cover it depending on the injuries AND as long as he DOES NOT mention that he got hurt while on the bike. 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.
