I live in Tennessee and yesterday at about 12:30 i was cooking in the broyer and had just cooked some chicken tenders. i had hooked the drainer onto the hook to let the oil off the broiler/drainer so i could remove the tenders. as i was removing the tenders the drainer slipped off the hook and landed into the frying oil and then splashed upon me. it burnt my hand really bad and underside of my arm. I went to the ER because after putting cold water on it and ice upon it i seen it had blisters coming upon my arm. well at the hospital they asked if it happened at work which it did then they asked if my employer had this wotkers comp which i did not know they did or not. well the hospital called my boss and my boss said that they did have workers comp. now my question, just what is it ? My hand still hurts , and it burns but i can still use it.
do i have to sue? What if i do not want to sue? have a nice boss. Does a person have to file a claim and all this or did the hospital already file it? And if they want to sue can i refuse to sue my boss?
