Benefits and legal rights confusion

I was injured on the job in late January of this year. I was on light duty for a few months, but since I wasn't improving I had to go on LOA in May. I received WC for about a month. I went through the "second opinion" appointment, with one of the doctors that worked for Claims Management, and my WC stopped. This doctor claimed my injury couldn't be proven to be work related, go figure.

I do have short term disability insurance, but when my WC was stopped, I contacted an attorney. I'm currently waiting to file an appeal. I was told I can't start short term disability unless we lose the case.

My employer just informed me that I will be terminated since my LOA is up. I don't know if I should/can file for unemployment while I wait an see whats going to happen with the appeal. My injury is preventing me from doing any kind of work at the moment. What should I do?

Sorry if someone else posted a similar thread, just getting stressed out.
