If your injury happened "on the job" and was the result of you performing ordinary activities on the job, you are covered by Workman's Compensation Insurance that your employer is required to provide. Contact the Dept. of Labor for the state where you live, and the division for Workman's Comp.. If still no action hire an attorney. You will fare better if you hire an attorney that specializes in Workman's Comp. cases. The attorney will collect his fee from a percentage of the overall settelment he gets for you.

The employer is not required by law to pay out sick pay while an employee is collecting workman's comp. It depends on the employer though. In some cases an employer may pay earned sick pay to an employee collecting workman's comp. pay as a good will gesture, especailly to an employee who has had a very serious injury and has been a long term employee who has had few or no injuries.
