I am sorry to read about your difficulties.

Yes, you do have a case if you were forced to early retirement by the company because it wrongfully denied your worker's compensation claim, which was later approved by the Court. You would need the services of an Attorney who handles ERISA (retirement) issues to assist you with the case.

You can use the following sites to find local Attorneys:
