broken arm = no job

I fell off of my bicycle after work and broke my elbow. I'll be unable to do most of the tasks my job requires for at least six weeks. Two work days after the injury, I was laid off and replaced. I have no insurance; now I have no income either. I can't even go looking for another job in my field until I heal. Am I eligible for unemployment benefits? Is there any other way for me to A) recover lost wages or B) defray my medical costs?
