If I got hurt at work where there is construction going on, can I sue the construction company for not following safety guidelines?

Question Details: I was at work and an employee lost control of a 3 inch water hose. It started spraying everywhere and when I turned around to get away, I fell over a concrete pillar with 4 bolts sticking out of it. My leg got stuck between the bolts and now I have cartilage damage and a tear in my left knee. The construction company did not following safety guidelines like safety taping or coning off the area.
