If you have been injured on the job, you may be entitled to Workers Compensation. If you work for a railroad, you may be entitled to sue the railroad, and if you do construction work, you may be entitled both to Workers Compensation, and to sue whoever caused your injury. If you have been fired, demoted or punished on your job, we may be able to help. It is against the law to fire or punish an employee because of a disability, or their use of Family Leave, or because of their age, sex, race or ethnic origin. It is also against the law to discriminate against an employee because they have filed a lawsuit, reported an injury or testified in court. But there are different rules for when you must make a claim for each kind of discrimination, and how you must make that claim. If you wait too long, you may lose your right to sue or even settle. If you think that you have been the victim of the negligence of a corporation or person, or the victim of discrimination, give us a call. We may be able to help.
