Vertical Bandsaw accident

I received 34 stiches to my Left middle finger after using a bandsaw at work. The machine is in a bad state of repair with a broken blade guard and broken LED lights which tell you if its running or not. At the time of the accident was unable to see if it was running or not due to the nature of the task. Is it worth pursuing?  If so, is there a rough idea of how much competition I would receive?
   The accident happened 3 weeks ago, I still have little movement in my finger and am unable to do my job at the moment, im currently on light office duties and have to return to hospital to see a plastic surgeon.
   Any information much appreciated.
