I was hired on by a local wheel and tire shop. After three weeks of working there, I was rear-ended by a lady in a van while I was on the clock making a tire delivery in a company car to our sister store. my back wasn't really hurting at the time but after a couple days, I had shooting pains from my lower back all the way to my arms. I passed a drug/alcohol test and was told to see a doctor and chiropractor which mildly helped. After about a month of therapy, I was cleared to work again lifting no more than 20 pounds for the time being. A week after that, I was terminated on the grounds of "It's simply not working out". Do they have a lawsuit on their hands? I'm a humble person and don't want to threaten to suit them but my back is truly in pain. Am I entitled to any type of settlement?
