You may have two separate cases----a worker's compensation case and an employment case.
Use the AVVO site to find a worker's compensation attorney and an employment attorney, and consult with both of them as soon as possible. Good luck.
We don't have enough information to give you a definitive answer. But for certain, you should consult a local workers compensation attorney who can get all the facts, and best advise you how to proceed to protect your rights and get all the workers compensation benefits to which you may be entitled. You may also want to consult an Employment lawyer regarding the way you were terminated. You can search for an attorney through this site, by clicking the "Find a Lawyer" tab at the top of this page and then searching for a workers compensation attorney in your city and state.

The fact that you were fired is not uncommon for someone injured at work. With regard to the workers' compensation case this should not be affected by your termination. If you are receiving disability and still treating you should continue to receive your disability benefit. Your workers' compensation case will continue and you can continue to seek treatment. As for your termination you might want to post a question on the employment law portion of AVVO. I would suggest talking to a workers' compensation lawyer and would be happy to hear from you.
You should not be fired, but often times it is cheaper for an employer to terminate an injured employee, depending on the facts.
