Chicago Heights, IL asked in Bankruptcy, Civil Litigation and Employment Discrimination for Illinois

Q: will bankruptcy get rid of this lawsuit?

I was injured at work, was on workers comp for several months and was cut off right before surgery by the whole insurance playing their games. my wc lawyer pawned me off to another "trial" lawyer who then pawned me off to another "new guy in the firm" lawyer who completely botched my case and lost. Now, a year later, no job, no money to pay for another civil lawyer, I'm being sued by the actual company i was at (not by the state of illinois dept of insurance of fraud nor by the actual company's insurance company)
