I am trying to find out if my husband still has any right to sue a company he worked for. He was hurt on the job, did not do workman's compensation, he took a medical leave of absence to have surgery. 3 days prior to his medical release, he was replaced at his position and was told there were no other positions in this area for him. My husband is still hurting and he believes it is the same injury. We have been put in a real bad financial situation and my husband is limited to what kind of work he can do. Alot of family and friends are telling us to go after the company legally and we don't know how or if we can.
Any help with this is greatly appreciated.

Re: Time Limitation
Basically you have one year from the date of accident, or from the date the last medical/weekly benefit was paid to bring legal action. The question of what rights you may have for his dismissal during his illness depends on a number of factors.
