If the MRI findings are related to your work accident, then they can still be added to your claim. We call that an extent of injury issue.

You can file a claim yourself. Once a claim is filed, the Division of Workers' Compensation will contact the insurance company for your employer and notify them of the claim. That will get things started. Of course, this assumes the employer has workers' comp insurance. I've attached a link below with additional info about getting a claim going by filing the notice of injury with the DWC.See question

The best way to figure this out is to talk to a local attorney. Mr. Morris mentioned the issue of "causation" in the workers' comp context, This is the technical term for proving that the work itself caused your stroke.
