Is my job at risk if I file a workplace accident claim?
We hear this question from workers all the time. It's one of the main concerns they have when they have an on-the-job injury is whether their job is going to be protected or whether their employer can fire them because they filed a lawsuit.
The answer is that federal and state law protects workers against retaliation when they file a good faith claim, which your lawsuit would be. And in addition, there are also protections provided by the Americans with Disabilities Act for workers who have an injury.
So, if you're afraid that your workplace may fire you because you want to file a lawsuit, what you can do is to contact a personal injury attorney who has a free consultation usually, and talk to them about your concerns and about your possible lawsuit. It's something that you could do free, and it's something that is confidential.
