More information is necessary to give you an accurate answer. Have you been out of work since your injury? Did you receive medical treatment right away and inform your treating physician that your condition was a result of your work environment? There are other factors consider too, such as whether or not your employer has or is required to have (depending on the size of the company) workers' comp insurance.
