Injuries from assault and issues regarding that arise within the work can give rise to assault cases against the perpetrator, cases against the employer, and potential workers compensation action.  Specific details of any assault, past history of the perpetrato, and workplace training and policies all should be reviewed.  Spefically, a civil suit for assault and battery against the perpetrator, and various causes of action against the employer may exist.
