I'm assuming then that you did not file your own personal injury claim either.Unfortunately, there is no longer any discussion that you can have with the company attorney that will be helpful to you.You were injured 7 years ago. The statute of limitations, meaning the time period that you have in order to make a personal injury claim, is only two years in Texas. It is too late to sue your employer for this injury.
Unless you have some other claim to make, like that you were fired based on your age or nationality, there isn't a claim to discuss. If you believe one of those to be the case (age or nationality) you need to file a complaint with the EEOC.
