Can you file for Workmans comp after all this time? Or did you immediately?
I guess I'm not sure what you're asking.
file a worker's comp claim at work. they can't fire you for being injured on the job doing something that relates to your job. *EDITED TO ADD* UNLESS you were being unsafe while doing your job, not wearing required protective gear and/or not following proper procedure pertaining to your job. however, i wouldn't even consider suing or even talking to a lawyer until a worker's comp claim is denied.
that being said, are there any signs posted, or were you preciously aware of the risk? typically, in cases like this it's company policy to wear protective gear around something that could potentially injure you. if you work with hot steam on a regular basis and are at risk of being burned, they should have available protective gear including eye protection, and if you weren't using it you're liable.
Did you go to the hospital, or do you have any proof that you were seen by a doctor?
Make sure you keep all the paperwork that the hospital gave you. As well as any your doctor gives you.
