If this was work related you may also be entitled to WC since the time they let you go and possibly an ongoing benefit. It is unclear what time of injury it was or how it happened. Sometimes though, with workers compensation people are let go after an injury to avoid paying ongoing wage loss payments. That opens up to front, the ADA and the WC statute. If there is any work relation you should talk to a WC attorney too, the consults are free because most cases are contingent.
