You should speak with a Workers Comp lawyer. Workplace injuries caused by your employer are regulated by Workmen's Compensation laws. Good luck!

The above answers are on point. However, if there is an outside company responsible for the maintenance/upkeep of the premises then you may have a third-party actioin against them for your injuries. If you wish to discuss the matter any further please feel free to contact me for an absolutely FREE consultation. I can be reached by phone at 347 702-4133 or by email at michael@mkesq.com. I wish you all the best.

Yourrs truly,
