There are only very limited circumstances that allow an injured employee to sue his employer. The normal remedy is the filing of a workers' compensation claim. This claim, depending on the facts and circumstances of your case, can be filed almost immediately. However, because of the very technical nature of this area of law, it is recommended that you consult with an attorney who has expertise in these areas of law, to determine what rights and remedies you have available to you. The initial consultation with a workers' compensation attorney, in Florida, is normally without cost to you, so that is where I would seek out counsel first.
