Workers Comp

I injured my back at work, I reported it to my supervisor and finished working my shift. Within the next few days my back continued to get worse, I missed many days of work because of it. I tried to keep working because I have a family to support, but within a few weeks I went to the emergency room and was given pain killers and was unable to work. My employer referred me to the companys medical center, I was told I needed surgery. Somehow their doctor didn't send my medical report in by the deadline and I was refused their help. My employer then called me and told me they would give me a desk job and I would earn approx $45,000.00 a year, and I wouldn't have to do anymore lifting. Out of options, I jumped on the opportunity, went back to work, and was fired a few days later. Am I entitled to workers comp, or some kind of compensation?

Thank You
