    A reinjury will probably be probably be covered. The greater risk is that you are fired for unrelated conduct, maybe even made up conduct.

    Was this an on-the-job injury? This is the workers' compensation forum. If you were not working at the time of the accident, or maybe on the way to or from work, you might want to post this at the personal injury or automobile accident forums.

    Tricky. First you need get a lawyer on board to help you with this denied claim. A lawyer will take a percentage of what he or she gets for you, so at this point you have nothing to lose. I would focus more on getting the claim in order at this point. As far as a job search, it never hurts. But you are going to need to do this under the guidance of somebody who knows how to talk you through it. Call a Board Certified Workers' Comp Specialist in your area to help you with your case.

    "I was told since I have not been with the company for a year I only get 30 days job protection." That part right there is enough for me to say you need to at least get a free consultation with a workers' comp lawyer. The blog link below may also help. Talk to a board certified workers' comp expert in your area.

    This is from my blog on this topic, which is linked below. This one is a little tricky. First, if an EMPLOYER (not insurance company) has a prior policy of requiring drug testing after an on the job injury, then the employee must either take the test or risk losing his job for violation of company policy. If there is no such policy then the employee is on firmer ground refusing the test. However a refusal or even a positive test is not a valid basis for denying a workers’ compensation...

    I would be very careful. Question include how old are you, how much were you making, are you back at work, any restrictions, future medical care? There are potential social security and Medicare issues here as we'll not to mention social security disability. Call a couple of good workers comp lawyers in your area. You get one chance with this.
