Lost Job Due To Work Related Injury.
I was working for a temp agency. While working there, I sustained what I believe to be a repetitive motion injury at my first assignment. At first, the pain was infrequent, and didn't bother me too much, so I didn't complain. I didn't realize how badly injured I was. At my next assignment, I was working with stiff heavy fiber optic cable, and it made my injury much worse. I had gone to the Dr. and turned in a doctor's note to my supervisor where I was assigned. I was going to hand in a doctor's note to my agency, but before I could, my agency supervisor and my supervisor at my job assignment let me go because I was hurt. My supervisor wouldn't even move me. He claimed that there was no place to put me, but I belive this to be untrue because several people had quit, and the next day he fired a girl. I was never assigned another job, and am in danger of losing my apartment. Now I'm in constant pain, and have no money to get further treatment for my injury. I was wondering if I have a valid case so I can get a lawyer and take this issue to court. Thanks for your time.
