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
