Report the accident immediately.
Worker's comp will pick up care going forward. You will be sent to a "company doctor". If you don't get the care you need seek out an attorney who specializes in worker's comp cases.

In brief: Report accident

When injured on the job you must 1st report the injury to your employer. Then your employer must file a first report of injury or illness to the insurance.
If the injury is accepted by the insurance carrier, then you begin receiving treatment. If denied by your insurance, then you may obtain the services of an ombudsman or hire a private lawyer to assist you in obtaining a wcbenefit review hearing.
