    Probably not - they had a valid reason to terminate.
    You are still eligible for medical until you heal 100% or settle your claim though.
    If you don't have a lawyer, now's the time to get one.

    Yeah, it is time for you to get a lawyer.
    The North Carolina Court of Appeals has held that "In contested Workers' Compensation cases today, access to competent legal counsel is a virtual necessity." Church v. Baxter Travenol Labs, Inc., and American Motorists Insurance Company, 104 N.C. App. 411, 416 (1991).
