I just got hurt at work what should I do?

I just started at 84 Lumber as a drywall stocker on my 2nd day of the job I was hit in the back by the crane off a boom truck while helping unloading insulation which was the drivers fault. I've been having back spasms and pain in my back. I left the job ,and today workers comp called me. I never even reported myself, and they said I reported it. What should I do?
