    You should consult with an attorney right away since you may have a workers compensation case and a separate claim against the person responsible for causing the accident. If you settled your WC claim via a Compromise & Release, then the WC insurance will not pay for future treatment, however, if your settled via a Stipulation & Award, that provides for future medical care paid for by the WC insurance according to the settlement terms. You should speak to an attorney.

    Yes you can continue treating . Caution however if the accident was work related and you filed a worker's compensation case which was settled and settlement terms closed out future medical expense The you might have to look to group insurance for payment . The possibility may also exist of making a claim against the driver responsible for the accident. That is a claim in addition to the worker's compensation claim .
