I was physically attacked on the job by a guest. I filed assault charges and he has been permanetly evicted from the property where I work. Since this time, I have suffered from panic attacks, uncontrollable crying, I think I see this man every night at work and I am very fearful and apprehensive and guarded. It is to the point that I cannot perform my job. My boss suggested an LOA, suspecting I may have PTSD. We are on a point system and she assured me I would not accumulate any points but no one can tell me about being payed for my time off. She said I may be able to draw on my short term disability and I was given a workmans Comp card but then told I was not entitled to it since my only physical injuries were not serious enough to be treated. Do I need to file civil charges against the man that assaulted me for restitution? ALSO... just minutes before the attack, the man got physical with my boss, then my boss sent me over to observe the man to see if he was intoxicated enough to be cut off. He never mentioned the fact that the man got physical with him. All of this is on video tape. I have also heard that the man who attacked me may have mental issues and on medication and his family brought him out to party for his birthday, knowing of this condition and leaving him unattended while he drank. He did not appear to be in his right mind when he attacked me. I have worked around drucks etc. for years and this was not alcohol induced. He was not provoked in ANY way. He threatened to kill one of my employees and me, being the supervisor, and under the instruction of my superior, simply asked the man if there was a problem and if I could help him with something and he attacked me! Please advise in Mississippi.
