A lot would depend on exactly what your accommodations were and their ability to work with you on them.

    If your employer is subject to the FMLA, you should be able to apply for job-protected intermittent time off under the to care for a minor child with a serious health condition. You need to request that leave as soon as possible, which will require a certification from your son's physician.

    It may be that your employer is violating disability or medical leave laws forbidding retaliation for taking medical leave or accommodating a disability. If your injury is work related then that may be an additional claim. You should contact an experienced employment attorney immediately who may be able to prevent or dispute your termination.
