I got hurt on the job, now they "let me go" [View all]

I tore up my shoulder pretty good and had to have surgery.
I was told it was LEGAL to fire(let go) me.
I lost my insurance for my kids.
I dont get it, should I have lied when I got hurt? Kept it from them?
I am still getting disability payments, but they said they
will end on May 23rd.
What is a guy supposed to do?
I am angry and worried as hell...I still
cannot lift my arm up, forget about picking up something heavy.
I got a lawyer, and (I guess I'll have to sue them).
I cant understand how that can be legal, but it is in PA.
Through no fault of my own, I followed the rules about reporting my injury.

Well, I just have to wait and see I guess.
