The timing of your termination seems suspect. There are a number of details necessary to evaluate whether you have a claim such as, how long were you working there, was employer on notice of accident and injury, did your injury prevent you from doing your job etc... You should discuss this with your workers compensation attorney who can explain your situation and available remedies, if any. If you are not happy with that attorney then you should seek out a new one. Good luck.See question
I fell on ice in my next door neighbors drive way 6 months ago, I had to be taken ton the hospital by ambulance. As of this day even though it did heal I experience constant pain and have to get another x ray. Can I do anything about this now.
You have 3 years to bring a negligence claim against your neighbor. In your situation you will need to establish your neighbor knew, or should have known, about the icy condition and failed to remedy it. The issues of how long the ice existed, where it was located an what type of weather was happening at the time of the accident will come into play. I would advise you contact a personal injury attorney in your area as soon as possible to discuss your options and how to proceed.See question

In oct 2013 I presented the HR person with forms from the DOH website for intermitant FMLA. She declined to take them even though my doctor had filled them out. I dropped the matter in January I went into a severe flare and could not work. I was g...
Unfortunately there are some details needed to be able to give you proper advice. You are entitled to 12 weeks of FMLA time per 12 month time frame. Your employer has the option of deciding how the 12 month time frame is calculated. So you will need to consult with your employee handbook or ask the HR person. If it is the standard calendar year, meaning from January 1 to December 31st, then you may have exhausted your leave time. Most attorneys will provide you with a free consultation to discuss your situation and determine if there has been any violation of State of Federal law.See question

My family has Ben resting an older house for about a year now, we found out my son has lead poisoning, the county environmental team came and inspected the house and found lead paint had been used on the house. Our lease has nothing stating "lead ...
Lead paint poisoning cases are essentially premises liability cases. A property owner had a duty to ensure the property is habitable and free and clear of dangerous and hazardous conditions. In 1996 a law went into effect requiring lessors of property to advise tenants if there is lead paint in the house and to provide a pamphlet about the hazards of lead in older homes. It sounds like this was not done. These cases can be tricky and you should consult with an attorney as soon as possible to discuss your situation and whether a premises liability case can be made for you. Right now you should focus on the recommendations of the medical providers to help reduce the potential effect the lead exposure will have on your child. The right attorney will guide you through protecting your child's right to compensation if possible.See question

It is a little too early to tell if you have a viable case. The facts so far at least warrant more investigation because there are certain situations where liability may attach for negligence in placing an IV. You should consult with an attorney who can talk to you about the process of evaluating a med mal case and whether you truly have something to pursue. I am sorry for what happened to you and hopefully you heal so and don't have any residual effect.See question
There are people that started after I did and make more an hour than I do and I have 2 children and they all still live at home.
If you are an employee at will then your employer has the right to maintain your wages at the same rate as long as it complies with State and Federal Minimum wage laws. However, if your wage issue is based on a discriminatory reason then the employer may be liable for treating you differently if you are within one of the protected classes.See question

It sounds like there is something here which warrants investigation. You should take photos of the area to show the progression of the healing and make sure you see a medical provider who can document the burn and the extent of same. Also, consult with medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible to help you in the evaluation of this possible claim. A major consideration will be the outcome of the burn, whether you develop problems in that area, scarring, etc... Our office, as most, will provide a free consultation to discuss your rights and possible claim.See question
Hi I got hurt almost 5years ago at my old job. I've had 4surgeries on my ankle. I went to my dr for permanent loss of use and he ended up giving me a classification which I don't understand? Help
Your question needs some clarification because I do not exactly understand what you are asking. Do you want to know what a classification is? Or, do you want to know what happens next?
A classification is a determination from the doctor about whether your injury is permanent and the percentage of limitation. This is what will be used to determine what award, if any, you may be entitled to for your injury. If you do not have a lawyer yet I would strongly recommend you get one to assist in the negotiation with the insurance company for your employer. Our office handles Workers' Compensation.
