forgive me in advance typing with only my left hand some of you may or may not know i work with exotic animals for a living. yesterday one of the animals attacked me and did quite a number on my right hand my dominant hand hence the left hand typing. My hand swelled the size of a softball and bled profusly from numrous pucture wounds. After cleaning it up it didnt look bad enough for a hospital so I just asked to go home early which my boss was miffed about but she said if I felt I needed to go to a doctor she would pay for it. Well today it looked kinda gross so I went to a walk in clinic. They gave me a tetanus shot which my boss was insitant on me getting, gave me another shot for pain and another of antibiotics which they wanted to give me an IV which would have cost $400 just for the IV. They took an xray to check for any foreign debri and cleaned it up and patched it up. The whole trip was $401 which is really cheap considering what it would have cost me to go to the emergency room. I called my boss with the total and she threw a fit asking if I could get them to go down on the price and that she wasnt going to pay the whole thing maybe $200 because she wasnt liable or responsible. id like to not this woman is beyond filthy stinking rich. She lives in a spanish castle with a huge pool and drives 3 cars one is a bently and she owns this whole buisness and puts out $400 a week min just to feed the animals. She paid $1000 for a pair of mini pigs with no pedigree or papers, for PIGS but shes fussing about $400 medical bill for my hand. Well she finally agreed to make good on her word but then she threatened my job, telling me she thought she needed someone more reliable and mybe she should start looking for someone else and she had just offerend me a higher position not even a week ago for more pay plus room and board. She had also admit to us that she had one employee whos life she made a living hell just to get her to quit. Im worried about going back now. The dr told me not to work tomorrow to give the medicine time to set in and do its job and she threw a fit about me not coming in tomorrow. She doesnt carry workmans comp because she has less than 4 employees so I would have to sue for personal injury and sue her homeowners insurance if I went that route and she pays me cash under the table Im just worried if I should just get her to pay the $400 and walk away after my 2 weeks and find another job which is so hard to do in this economy or if I should sue, or if I should try and keep working there and risk her making my life a living hell till I quit. I know there are a lot of people on here who know the law better than me and this is in the state of FL but if I didnt give enough information ill provide as much as I can for your input. Thanks!
