Can I sue my employer for improper medical handling?

Question Details: I was at work and had a small injury. I went into the on site first aid and a safety team member was filling in for the official medical team member. The safety team member ended up over icing my leg for 40 minutes when there is a rule of 15 minutes only for icing that I latered learned about. It resulted in me getting burned badly on my leg leaving a large red inflammation/burn. He went for a heatpad to try to correct his mistake, however I told him to take it off because I could feel the heat ice burns apparently leave the area ice cold after the burn. Over time it worsened until an injury special was on site to treat it "properly" 2 days later. The was no paperwork done for the burn incident. In which he gave me itching cream and left.
