Steve: I am really sorry to hear this. I live in Dallas too. You will need to try to file for workers compensation in order to get these costs covered or at least ask your employer for health coverage if you do not want to antagonize them. I believe you would need to file in Texas since that is where you work. If you have specific questions feel free to post them here or we can talk via phone for an additional charge.
Steve: My apologies I was away from the computer all day. You would file in Texas since that is where the injuries occurred. You generally have to follow the guidelines and providers the employer recommends which is my understanding. I cannot estimate how much would come out of pocket but it should all be reimbursable. Missed time from work should also be covered under their worker's compensation insurance.
If they do not respond or are not covering all of your losses then you would need to retain an attorney who specializes in worker's compensation to be sure they do not take advantage of you and that all costs are covered. Hopefully you will not need to get to that point.
