If your doctor has diagnosed the problem to be work related, you should file a workers compensation claim. Your employer cannot terminate you for filing a workers compensation claim. Further, If you make false statements regarding the nature of the injury, you risk loosing any insurance coverage you may have. It would be best to discuss the details of your injury and your employment situation with an attorney as soon as possible.
Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or via the link below if you have any questions.
If your employer is threatening you, you need to talk to an attorney. You should not allow them to intimidate you and discourage you from filing a claim. If you are injured at work you are entitled to certain benefits, including payment of all medical bills. You may also receive payment for lost wages if you have to take time off work due to your injury. I'd be happy to give you a free (and confidential) consultation.
