The short answer is it depends on your job and the actual reasons for your termination. You need a plaintiff-side employment lawyer to discuss whether your employer failed to give you a reasonable accommodation to get better and return to work. If you were hire to do a specific task, or had to complete a certain task within a specific time period, your employer may have good grounds but you need a one-on-one consultation.
