Can I file for Unemployment Compensation benefits when I am off work and getting treatment for my work injury?

Section 287.170.3 RSMo. states that applying for unemployment and receiving unemployment benefits disqualifies employee from receiving any workers' compensation benefits while they are receiving unemployment benefits.  If you apply for unemployment benefits, you will not be able to receive any workers' compensation benefits for temporary total disability for the same weeks in which you receive unemployment benefits.
