Just like most of you i have a long story to tell ! But will try to make this short. My question is, "Can you be fired or released while on worker's comp. ? My former employer released me due to being inactive for over 90 days. While on i was on their work comp. insurance. They released me 1 week before my 1st surgery. I have been on work comp for almost 3 years now, still drawing weekly check, had two surgeries for neck fusion - first one turned out bad, did not fuse and still waiting on the second surgery, acting like the first ! Lawyer says theres nothing i can do, i have no rights, just wait and see what happens, "be thankful i get a check once in awhile" ! Almost died after 2nd surgery due to blood clots, which the doctor was warned aboutand work comp was warned about, but work comp would not okay the medicine to control the problem after surgery ! Help, Need some friends and answers !
