Lawsuit actions against my work?
So i work at a Long john silvers as a cook and this morning i burned me hand severely i received second degree burns that cover all of my fingers on my left hand. I know im supposed to wear protective gloves however i neglected to do so, and my manager on duty was aware of this and failed to chastise me for not wearing them while on duty. I got the burns while draining the frying oil out of the vat for it to be dumped outside. To be more specific i was squeegeeing (however u spell that?) it of the vat when my hand slipped and slammed into the bottom of the still hot vat and hand some oil still in it and burned my hand. Now my manager would not let me leave me work KNOWING i had received this severe burn and i was forced to work all day with this intense pain on my hand. Im wondering if i should take some sort of legal actions against my work? And if i should what type or how should i go about doing so? Or would i even have some type of case against them for forcing me to work with major injuries to my hand?
I would really appreciate some advice about this please and thank you.
