Thank you for contacting us. From my read of your question you want an opinion as to what the outcome of your case might be.
You state that you filed the workers compensation
claim within 30 days. As long as this was in 30 days of the date of the injury, then you don't have any issues there. The next question will be whether it is a compensable injury. This analysis will look to see if there is any history of back injury in your medical records or any other cause of the injury other than your work. If you have a specific incident in which you felt something happen to you at work, then you don't have any issues there either. If there isn't a specific incident you can point to which caused your injury, then the insurance carrier may attempt to dispute. However, if your job involves lifting, etc., then you shouldn't have a hard time establishing that the injury occurred at work.
If you pass these first hurdles, then your medical care should be provided for in the end. This process may take a while and your lawyer may have to press the insurance carrier to accept the claim and pay the medical benefits due.
The fact that you were terminated prior to your reporting of the claim does not affect the fact that if you are told by your doctor that you cannot work, then you are entitled to benefits. The benefits will be determined by a calculation of your average weekly wage, which will be determined by what you were earning before you were terminated, but will not exceed $500 per week.
Please let me know if this answers your question, or if you need further information.
