I've been off of work for the past year due to a surgery in a workers comp. case, which marks my 3rd surgery in all. I had a "friend" accuse me of faking the injury (even though I have limited movement and a very strict weight limit) and "taking advantage" of the system, even thin I'm due for my 4th surgery next month.
These things were written on a public forum (Facebook) and have been the cause of several more fights with friends from the original posting.
Ultimately, do I have a possible claim for libel in small claims court? While this has cost me nothing so far, other than some great relationships, who knows what could come of it in the end if I don't take steps to end it.
Thanks!This person wrote another post on their own wall, which I'm not privy to viewing but have been sent the text from friends, stating how I've been faking the injury and taking advantage of the system. Previously, the first "conversation" was limited to just a friends status.
