You need to go to a local worker's compensation attorney to have your arm issue worked out. You want that established, because that is where your second claim will stem from, called a termination in violation of public policy. However, for an attorney to take that claim, they will want the worker's compensation claim going first.
Once you have the WC claim going, you can then seek out an employment law attorney (sometimes the WC attorney will do it) to file a complaint for wrongful termination in violation of public policy. The employer here clearly made a decision based on the fear of your use of WC and that is considered illegal.
