Undocumented Construction Workers

If you are not a United States citizen and you have been hurt in an accident you still have rights and can recover money in a lawsuit. Because they feel vulnerable, undocumented workers are too often coerced into believing they are without rights. Any undocumented worker, or what some people characterize as 'illegal alien', who is injured should consult with a qualified, experienced personal injury attorney.

All Workers Have A Right To File A Personal Injury Claim

Regardless of your immigration status, you do have a legal right to bring a personal injury lawsuit in New York and be compensated for your injuries. Even if you are undocumented, you can potentially recover monetary damages following an accident for your past and future lost earnings, medical expenses, and pain and suffering, as well as your loss of enjoyment of life. The New York Law Journal published an article written by our firm explaining how the law allows for recovery of lost earnings for undocumented workers; and even in some instances for undocumented workers who submitted false identification in order to obtain employment.

Undocumented Construction Workers In New York City

Construction companies that employ undocumented workers knowingly enjoy the benefits of increased profits from reliable labor that is usually less expensive. But when these same companies carelessly allow for unsafe work site conditions that cause their workers to be injured, the companies often suddenly turn around and try to use the workers' undocumented status against them. This is both hypocritical and unfair. Do not fall victim to negligent construction site contractors and owners twice by being injured and then afraid to pursue a case.
