If you were hurt due to the negligence (carelessness) of a coworker, or due to improper safety gear, provisions, training, rules, etc., or due to unsafe conditions or improper maintenance, you could likely sue your employer for your out-of-pocket (not paid by insurance or Medicaid) medical expenses, for any lost wages, and possibly for "pain and suffering" if you are suffering or have suffered many weeks or longer of significant impairment or disability. If your costs, lost income, or injuries were significant, it would be worth your while to consult with a personal injury attorney about possibly suing.
