Thanks for the info, but I was wondering if the "payoff" to get rid of me would be considered a workmans comp thing or something else?
I hope I am getting this across correctly.
The lawyers are working to get a settlement from either the company or the workmans comp people. I have heard that the company occasionally gives an injured worker a large check to "get rid of them" and then they also cover all the medical bills and retrain them. Since I have never had this happen to me and it's all new, I am hoping to be prepared for anything they try to throw at me.
I am close to filing bankcruptcy because of the lack of income because of the injuries and it is getting real old!!
Again, thank you very much for the reponse.
Talk at ya later,
Dan
