I was a electrician and i was getting $900 a week, and i am claiming for wrongful termination because they terminated me after i got injured( the nest day) while i was in hospital for my injury that happend at work.
my workers comp is paying my and i have a seprate file for my workers comp byt wrongfull termination is because they can not terminate me because of my injury.
i worked for this company for 3 years and as soon as i got injured they fired me next and they did not wanted to go with workers comp they asked me if you do not file for workers comp we keep you working when ever you get better but i did filed workers comp and thats why they terminated me. my attorny told me sometimes wrongfull terminations goes to $1000,000 or even more because the place that i was working is a union so by law they can not terminate you because you got injured and that is a discrimation. so tommorow they want to settle my case and i have no idea what they gonna offer me and if i do not accept it what is next. the amount that you told me with the amount that i search online and my attorney told me is a big diffrence. can you give me more information please or if you need more spacific information let me know so you can help me more accurate.
i already have a attorny and i filled a wrong termination lawsiut almost 1 year ago and know after 1 year they tried to go for diposition but they canceled it after 1 week and they put mediation instead. because they do not want to go to triel. as i know they want to settle the case but i want to have a amount in my mind. Because my attorney get half of the money that they offer me so i do not want my attorney push me to settle the case so he can get his money. i want to settle it as high as possible . i did filed a lawsuit and i have a attorney.
