I was wrongfully terminated and according to a few lawyers I have met with they say I have a very strong case against this company for Medicare fraud, abuse of residents rights in a nursing home, failure to offer FMLA, fired when on medical leave from a workplace injury. I was fired 2 months ago and ready to hire the lawyer for this case; however, because of lost income I had to file chapter 7 bankruptcy and my home is at risk of foreclosure. This past Monday I hired and signed the papers to file bankruptcy and try to save my home from foreclosure.
Should I worry that my winnings (if won in my favor) will be taken by any of the collection agencies for past due credit card debt?
And only if in the end I can not save my home and it is foreclosed will they also take money won?
