Almost all states require an employer to be injured. Some have fines where the state gets rich and you may a few cents. Many states have other programs that cover a worker in these instances. In California a worker can seek compensation from the Uninsured Employers Fund. Since you don't say what state you're in, read through the statutes on workers comp and find out for yourself.
