I agree with Tim Belt, you have a comp claim that has become more complicated with leaving the prior employer. You should probably prove the injury, as they undoubtedly only accepted a “sprain” (the tis but a flesh wound of WC practice). That generally happened even if you had a broken back. Future care depends on the type of injury accepted or proven and you only have three years from the date of the injury. Also, if you have any problems in the future with it, it would limit you. I would talk to an attorney and have them sort out and explain your options.
