Good afternoon. Even if a tenant is in default,
the law does not allow the landlord to forcibly evict a tenant without
obtaining an eviction order from a court. What that means is that if
termination date comes and the tenant doesn't move out, the landlord cannot
simply change the locks or throw the tenant's things out. Rather, what the
landlord has to do is to first deliver a 3-Day Notice to quit in
Idaho...which basically says the tenant has 3 days to leave or face
eviction. But, if the tenant still doesn't leave, the landlord must then file a
petition with the court for an eviction order. Depending upon the court's
docket, it can take anywhere from about 15 days to a couple of months to get a
hearing. Only when a judge has issued
the eviction order can the landlord have the tenant evicted. That will buy the
tenant a good bit of time.

Hi,

The previous expert was correct on your housing situation. I'll give your other issues a try. In order to address those other issues, I need some more information. Please answer the following questions:

1. What kind of work did you do?

2. How long have you been working at that job?

3. When did you first start noticing your arm pain?

4. Do you have back pain as well?

5. Have you ever suffered a back injury?

6. Do you know the cause of your nerve injury?

7. Were you at work when the injury occurred?

8. Have you filed a workers compensation claim?

9. Have you filed a disability claim?

10. How did you lose your job, were you fired, or were you laid off?

11. Have you filed an unemployment claim?

12. Have you filed a social security claim?

13. How long have you had rheumatoid arthritis and have you been officially diagnosed with the same?

14. Are you on medication for rheumatoid arthritis?

15. Did your employer know you had rheumatoid arthritis?

16. Did your employer's decision to terminate or lay you off have anythign to do with the fact that you could not work because of your rheumatoid arthritis?

Please provide the answer to these questions and I will try and help you.

Best Regards,
Zachary D. Norris

Expert:  Zachary replied 2 years ago.
My advice to you is that you need to immediately file a workers compensation claim. You need to claim that the injury happened to you at work and that it happened as a result of lifting heavy objects. You also need to claim that the employer terminated you as a result of your injury.

You should also look into filing a claim for violations of the Americans with Disability Act, as you could argue that your employer failed to make reasonable accommodations for your RA condition.

Filing the workers compensation claim will allow you to get medical treatment and to get some income benefits.
You can do this without getting a lawyer.

For the Americans with Disabilities Act potential claim, you need to consult a local attorney.

Please let me know if you need further information.

Best of Luck,
