What types of damages can I receive for wrongful termination?
Every legal case is different, but in general, you may be eligible for financial compensation for some or all the following items if you have been wrongfully terminated, including:
- Replacement income since your wrongful termination.
- Lost wages as a result of being fired.
- Lost future income if you cannot return to work due to a work-related injury or illness.
- Medical bills if you sustained an injury at work that resulted in your wrongful termination.
- Pain and suffering in certain circumstances.
- Punitive damages if your employer deliberately broke the law when firing you.
These are just a few of the damages you may be eligible to receive if you were fired and your employer broke the law by terminating you. To learn more about other damages you may potentially be eligible to receive, make sure you talk to a lawyer as soon as possible who is familiar with the rules and regulations governing such cases in your state.
How much is my wrongful termination case worth?
This is one of the most frequently asked questions about wrongful termination we receive at our law firm. The short answer is there’s no specific amount when it comes to such legal cases. Some claims or lawsuits might be worth a few thousand dollars. Others could potentially be worth much more money. The difference often depends on many different factors, including:
- Did you sustain an injury at work that resulted in your wrongful termination?
- Can you physically return to work?
- Did someone at work physically assault you?
- Did your employer blatantly ignore state or federal labor laws when they fired you?
All these factors and many more can influence how much your case could potentially be worth. Many employers will often downplay the financial impact of their actions. That’s why it’s important to have an experienced, wrongful termination attorney on your side, advocating for the maximum financial compensation.
