What happens if I had an accident at work and I am an illegal immigrant?

You are legally protected for an injury suffered at work whether you are a legal resident or citizen of the US or not!

As an undocumented immigrant you might feel fearful of reporting an injury or accident in your workplace. You might fear deportation and arrest which might stop you from filing a personal injury claim. This might allow negligent people to avoid taking responsibility. 

If you or someone you know is in this situation contact Alex Martinez Law Firm for a free consultation and get the best support towards receiving a deserved compensation. 

Immigrants, whether they are undocumented or documented, generally have the most risky jobs. Situations might include being exposed to dangerous chemicals and conditions as well as heavy equipment. 

Many immigrant workers lose limbs, fingers and/or suffer other serious injuries and are afraid to report them. Employers might not offer compensation benefits or healthcare due to negligence while they are already paying a low salary. 

Everyone, regardless of their citizenship or legal status, is entitled to protection and legal defense as well as rightful compensation.

There are 4 components to prove Negligence. 

  1. Duty
  2. Breach of Duty
  3. Causation
  4. Harm/Damages

The best chance to obtain the highest amount of compensation is hiring an experienced personal injury Attorney. 

A few typical types of recoverable damages are:

  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Rehabilitation and medication expenses
  • Hospital bills
  • And more…
