I was hurt at work while workers demolished tile and 1 piece exploded and was embedded in my leg. My employer forced me to work an additional 5 hours. Then I went to the ER, I had shrapnel removed, stitches, and now a scar that puffs out the size of a strawberry on the front of my leg due to tissue damage a dr said. The employer has no workers comp insurance, nor did they offer to pay, but acknowledged the fault was there own. I have pictures, a email from the owner, a witness statement, and I had sent my own workers comp claim in and it came back saying they had no workers comp insurance "This is the result of the investigation". My question is can I sue them for damages, pain & suffering, or negligence.
