Legal Question

Asked on: 4/12/13, 11:33 am

I was lighting a woodstove with paint thinner that my boss made us use and it was starving for air because the flu was smaller then the exhaust coming out so it caused a fire and I went up in flames burning my whole rt side 3rd degree burns and 2nd on face. I do not think its legal to have a woodburning stove in a bodyshop where we are spraying primer and paint. Also my boss tried putting me put but made it worse by fanning a shirt on me. I then ran to the paint shop to the hose a put myself out. He then refused to call 911. Had the Secretary take me to an ambulance down the road. Where I then had to wait for the fire department to show up there all because he didn't want a scene. Can I sue for anything other then workers comp. I'm left w all these scars and cannot work around dust which is what I do for a living painting cars.
