I have been working for a company as a professional for around 10 years. So far no problem but company is going thru hard times, there is possibility co will lay off several people. I also have had a leukemia diagnostic for a bit over 3 years, sincè it is asymptomatic I have not notified the company because I have no need for treatment now but I could in the near future or midterm. Is there an impediment to my firing and losing health insurance as well as disability? Nothing has happened but I just want to prepare and see if I have any options other than being fired and losing benefits and insurance and potential disability, insurance has covered appointments and some tests related to disease so there is a record, Thx

Im not sure if I have a case and it may no be considered

im not sure if I have a case and it may no be considered personal injury. My son died 4 years ago. The funeral home screwed up his funeral. They were supposed to bring a cremation to the church for the funeral and an hour before the funeral they called me and asked me if I wanted an open or closed casket. You probably cannot imagine how I felt at that moment. I was recommended a lawyer here in town and I think she was on the side of the funeral home and had little regard for what they put me through. I ended up with a check for approximately $16,000. I sat in her office and cried and said "this is nothing." All she said was "Well, now remember I a only taking about $2,000. Twenty years ago my husband died and he was buried in a crypt at Cedar Memorial. His funeral cost me $14,600 and I had put $5000 down on my son's funeral. I requested that they cremate my son as should have been done before the funeral and that they remove my husband and cremate him for free. They did give e his ashes and those of my son. Here's my question. It was 4 years ago on May 16, 2017 that my son died. When I went to the lawyer, the first thing she said to me is "Oh, I know these people." All I said was,"well, maybe that will help the case move along a little quicker." Never thinking she was on their side, not mine. I have talked to several lawyers about this. One of the lawyers said, did she really file a suit? I said she never told me she didn't but as I checked into it further, it appears that she did not. Evidently there is something lawyers can do before filing s suit that makes things much more simple. Whatever that is called is what she did, I guess. I have a signed contract by the funeral home that says they will bring the urn to the church and one lawyer called that a breach of contract since they did not do what they said they would. Im sure I signed off on papers releasing Cedar Memorial from fur there obligation but can I go back and sue the lawyer because she sided more with them than me? I had another lawyer tell me that if I had come to him, he would have said immediately that I needed this to go to court because he had no idea what something like this is worth. I'm sickened at the loss of my son to begin with and that face that the funeral home messed up the funeral and that my lawyer was on their side, not mine. Any advice you can give me would be appreciated. Is what my lawyer did to me considered malpractice?JA: The Lawyer's require payment for their services. It's way less expensive on JustAnswer than face-to-face would cost. The Lawyer's require payment for their services. It's way less expensive on JustAnswer than face-to-face would cost.

Or all the options she did not offer me.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: How much does this advise cost me?JA: I'm not sure of the exact price, but there's only a $5 deposit. The rest of the price information will be on the page I send you to.Customer: Do you only get money if you win the case?
