I agree with the prior response. however, you may wish to check and see if the floor is cleaned by a party other than your employer. Man employer's use third party cleaning services and they may be liable to you for their negligence.

You can't sue your employer in GA. You may have a workers' comp claim because you injured yourself while at work. However, if it was during a regularly scheduled work break, it may not be compensable. You are allowed to make claims for accidents that occur during the course of and scope of your employment, or while you are at your work place doing something in furtherance of your job duties. If your break was not a regularly scheduled break and it was over and you were on your way back to your job duties you have a claim.

You may have a work cmp claim, so see a comp atty. You may have a third party claim against the cleaning service if they are not employee of your employer. If the bldg isnt owned by you employer, you may be able to sue the owner of the bldg too.
