I was at work, stepped off a ladder, tore my ACL , wkm's cmp insurance denied. Hired an attorney, he said I have to use my insurance claim short term disability, bring medical bills to magistrate, get attorney to argue to court that employer to pay for bills. I will be out of work for 6 weeks. Short term disablity kicks in after 2 weeks(with out pay). #1. Is this correct procedure? #2. If I do this according to my attorney way can I get an agreement not to get fired from job because of my claim from employer?
