You have a case if you can prove the injury happened at work. Under Worker's Comp laws the company must have proof that your injury did not happen at work to deny you benefits. If they terminate you for suing for your benefits or trying to exercise your rights to Worker's Comp, then you have a retaliation claim against them. You should contact a lawyer to pursue your Worker's Comp claim because attorney's fees are covered by Worker's Comp. Additionally, document everything you learn about their desire to terminate you once you return to full duty, so you will have it if they try to retaliate against you.
