If I got injured when I got caught in elevator door, what can I do to seek legal action against the parking garage where the injury occurred?

At a downtown parking garage, I was attempting to get on elevator after person getting off exited. As I entered the elevator, the door began closing on me. I assumed that it was going to retract before or just after touching me. However, it did not stop. It crushed me to the point when I heard grinding and crackling in my left shoulder causing a lot of pain, to the point that I almost passed out. It turns out that I sprained my shoulder. Now, I’m in a sling with a good amount of pain to contend with.
