Light fell on head. Company is now going bankrupt and workers comp is not paying medical bills.

While at work after the Christmas season, a light fell on my sisters head. The medical bills, which were to be paid by workers comp, are now not being paid because the company is going bankrupt. The hospital keeps calling and harrassing her to get paid but we feel it is not her responsibility. Advice??

Your sister needs to talk to a lawyer who is experienced in Workers Compensation cases.  One place she can find one is our website, http://attorneypages.com

It sounds as if the company your sister worked for was self-insured, for workers' comp.  Your lawyer should be able to find this out, if your sister cannot, and he will know how to go about getting her bills paid.
