My apologies for the delay in responding to you. I did not work here yesterday (Friday).
There is a way for you to start matters without having to spend any money, and get a free investigation without spending any.
You have the right to file a disability discrimination complaint with both the state discrimination agency and the federal one, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
In Texas, you can contact the state agency here: http://www.twc.state.tx.us/customers/rpm/rpmsubcrd.html
There is also some additional very helpful information here: http://www.tlsc.org/erp1.html
You can contact the EEOC here: http://www.eeoc.gov/ (there's a ton of great information at this website!)
If you start with the state agency, in most states they'll file a complaint with the EEOC on your behalf at the same time.
There are deadlines for filing, so don't delay!
Complaint investigations are free. They're not always the best, XXXXX XXXXX do get a free investigation. If it looks like they are going to file a "no cause" finding, withdraw your complaint before they do. That way, if you go to court, a "no cause" finding can't be used against you.
You may also want a consultation with a local attorney who specializes in employment discrimination. An attorney who is familiar with how juries tend to rule in your area may be very helpful to you. You can have the best case in the world, but if you're in a conservative area that tends to side with employers, it's good to know this up front.
Be sure any attorney with whom you speak has at least five years experience in handling employment discrimination cases, since you have sort of a doozy (it's not cut and dried).
Here are some places to try:
Don't actually HIRE an attorney without first checking references. And don't try to pick the attorney's brain on the phone. Schedule an appointment and visit the office, like you would for a doctor!
As a whole separate matter, you asked about medical malpractice. Very few attorneys take these cases, because they're very expensive to handle. I would try the trial attorneys above
http://www.ttla.com/TX/ Again, make an appointment and go to the office.
Because your case is complicated, you may want to try the biggest law firms, because they have the most resources. The same law firm would likely be able to handle both an employment discrimination case and medical malpractice, but again, check references before you hire anyone. You need to know some basics, such as whether the attorney will return phone calls, have invoices you understand, and so forth.
Again, I am sorry I wasn't able to get back to you yesterday.
All my best,
