    Sounds like a case of the blind man who was given the keys and wrecked the car.  Now he wants to sue the person who gave him the keys.

    It was your mistake,  not his. Not an HR issue.

    If you want your job, you won't sue.  You could ask them to pay for credit monitoring for a year or two however.  Freeze your credit with the 3 major credit bureaus to prevent anyone from using your information.  There's not much they can do without your entire SSN, but someone might try.  They should also change your PIN.  If you saw your information on the screen, why didn't you bring it to the trainer's attention immediately?

    Suing for what? They didn’t share it, you did by accident.  I doubt much will come of it actually. Change your pin.

    Yeah, I have a suggestion. Next time look at what's on your screen before you share it with 20 people.
