When I nod my head, you hit it with a hammer

I got all the way through the demolition and quite a bit of the build-up prep for tile without anything more serious than some tiny splinters. I got what you see in the photo tightening up a nail in some nearby drywall that had come loose. It's not like I was holding the nail. My hand was just "in the area". My only excuse was that it was at the end of the day, so my hammer swinging accuracy was tuckered out. It's either that or some gangsters out for vengeance broke into my house, held me down, and bashed my finger. It's a toss-up.

By the next morning, things had gone pretty purple. Luckily, it doesn't hurt too much. Where do I file the workmen's compensation claim?
