Your question is not clear. What does your job have to do with anything? Were you on the job at the time? You only have two years to file your lawsuit. I suggest you speak with an attorney immediately. You may think you still have plenty of time, but attorneys will need time to investigate and determine whether he or she is willing to take your case. It is possible there no at fault party. Slip and fall cases are very difficult. I wish you the best.
