Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
I am very sorry to learn of your situation. Unfortunately as you are no longer employed by this job, you most likely do not qualify for worker's compensation benefits (this is the primary source of compensation for injured workers).
However, I do still recommend that you promptly meet with a disability attorney to discuss your case and see what benefits you do qualify for (SSDI or SSI may be viable alternatives, and I would recommend having a local attorney review your case before completely ruling out workman's comp.).
You can find local attorneys using the State and local Bar Association directories, or private directories such as www.AVVO.com; www.FindLaw.com; or www.Martindale.com (I personally find www.AVVO.com to be the most user friendly).
