If I wrecked my car on the clock while working for a pizza chain, should they help me get a new car?

Also, I did not get a safety booklet or watch the videos. I have not worked since. Is there any I could sue them?

Assuming you wrecked your vehicle while working for your employer I see no legal or factual basis why your employer should help you get a new vehicle unless the employer somehow caused you to have the mishap.

Based upon what you have written I do not see a factual or legal basis for you to sue your employer.
