I think you want to see if you can find a personal injury lawyer who may also know some landlord/tenant law, but the PI stuff is more important. Cases like that are almost always covered by some sort of insurance and almost always get settled. An experienced PI lawyer can evaluate the extent of your injury and perhaps give you a ballpark assessment of what you might get in a settlement. Whether it scars makes a big difference in the value of the case; a permanent facial scar can be something that affects you for life. I may be able to refer you to a good PI lawyer. I'm sorry to hear about your injury and hope it heals well.
Yes, you can probably sue for that.
