Can an injured teacher sue a school district?

Question Details: I was injured breaking up a fight after entering a classroom full of unattended students not my classroom. I am having trouble with my lower back and neck and have required X-rays, MRI, and physical therapy. Worker's comp is paying for medical bills and my time out. If my injuries are proven to be long term or have a life long effect, do I have a case against the school district? For example, I can no longer stand for more than a 20 minutes at a time, or go up and down stairs without discomfort. This hinders my ability to perform a job that I have done for over 20 years.
