Your exclusive remedy is to file a claim under workman's comp.

Expert:  Loren replied 2 years ago.

The benefit is that you do not have to prove negligence or fault on the employer's part.

Expert:  Loren replied 2 years ago.

You need to file a claim under workman's comp. It is not a slip and fall lawsuit.
