A: Yes.. You should consult with an attorney to confirm but there is a good chance you have a case. I have handled cases like that before and if they truly were mistaken and assaulted you then you could get compensated. Did you sustain injuries that required a trip to the doctor?

A: a lawyer would need more facts......however an employer is usually not responsible for the intentional acts.......here

however it is arguably negligence if they made a mistake and were they acting reasonably in what they were doing.?

what kind of injuries?

if you can not find a lawyer you can always go into small claims court without a lawyer and sue for up to $10k and get a court date within a few months
