A: This is a complex and fact-intensive scenario that you would need to discuss with an attorney to receive any kind of meaningful direction. Your post remains open for four weeks, but one option you could consider is to contact a Wisconsin workers' comp attorney to discuss the denial of the WC claim in further detail. You could also consider contacting an employment law attorney if you want to discuss the matter of being fired. You could find Wisconsin attorneys in both categories (above in the Find-a-Lawyer tab), or you could search on your own. Some attorneys could offer you a free initial consult - that is something to discuss and ascertain beforehand with individual attorneys. Good luck
