    Default Can You Get Worker's Compensation After Being Fired for an Unrelated Issue

    My question involves workers compensation law for the state of: Misouri

    My husband injured his back at work, in maintenance, June 2010. He filed report, saw a doctor, got an MRI and was diagnosed with a protruding disc. He then received hydrocortisone injections in August and September 2010. Felt better but Pain Clinic recommended another injection in October 2010 and every 6 months or yearly as needed, but work said he felt better, so he was done. Ok, no problem...go on. Then in December 2010 he was fired for a nonrelated issue and now we have no insurance and beginning February 2011 he is much worse. So my question is....Can he still receive Workmans Comp benefits? Former employer still responsible for treatments? etc.?

    Thanks in advance

    As long as the case has not settled, he can still have any medical treatments covered. He will not be eligible for lost wages.

    What do you mean by settled? How would we know or find out? Perhaps contact the person who was handling his case?

    If the case were settled, you would know.
