I got hurt at work is it worth getting a lawyer.

I had an at work accident where a tool broke and cut a big hole in my face just below my lip, it also did damage to my teeth where some were knocked out and some broke. I now have a big nasty scar on my face. Is it worth getting a lawyer to get my teeth fix and a settlement for not being able to shave without showing a nasty scar.

Since you were injured at work, you have a worker's compensation claim.
Your employer's HR Dept. should have the applicable documents you need for filing a worker's compensation claim.
However, you should also speak with a worker's compensation attorney or law firm.
