        If worker's comp "dropped you" then I'm guessing you reached maximum medical improvement (MMI) and your claim was closed. If you are left with any permanent impairment, you should receive a permament partial disability payment (PPD.) If you have a permanent 10 lb weight restriction and cannot adquately perform your job, then in all likelihood it was legal for you to be terminated.

        If you can't do mechanic work any longer, you may be eligible for vocational rehabilitation.

        I suggest you consult with a worker's compensation attorney. I can only guess at what's taken place regarding your WC claim and your medical status.
