I tripped over a piece of wood on a job site and couldnt finished my shift. I called my employer to let him know and when i got back to the yard they took me to the clinic. Once their i filled out all the forms and when it asked if i ever had a workers comp claim i said yes. That claim had been closed for around 3 yrs. The reason i tripped was do to a bad knee. 3 days after i went to see the clinic doc i went out on FMLA because of my knee. 2 weeks later I recieved a notice from the workers comp insurer that my claim was denied. When out on FMLA I had a total knee replacement. When i recoverd and was able to go back to work I was let go. In the termanation letter they said since i never told them about my past workers comp claim they felt i had lied and that was the reason i was let go. I filed a EEOC claim. The EEOC dismissed the claim and in it they said that i still had a open workers comp claim and was never released back to work.
If the insurance company denied my claim how can the say that the claim is still open
