New York Illegal Construction Worker Accident Lawyer

Are You an Undocumented Alien? You Have Rights

If you are a recent immigrant or an undocumented construction worker who was seriously hurt on the job, you may have been told you have no legal rights because you have no papers. You may also be afraid to bring a lawsuit for fear that you will be deported. People are likely trying to take advantage of you.

You do have legal rights, and you will not be deported for using these rights.

Personal injury lawsuits take place in the civil courts. Undocumented workers are not deported for pursuing on-the-job injury claims in our civil courts.

The law firm of Block O’Toole & Murphy is here to help undocumented construction workers protect their rights and get the money they need to recover from job site injuries. Our New York construction worker accident attorneys have helped numerous injured individuals recover more than $1 billion*. We will fight for you and make sure your rights are protected

Getting Money for Construction Site Injuries

Whether you are a permanent resident (“Green Card” holder), you have a temporary work visa or you entered the U.S. illegally, you may still be able to recover money for injuries you suffered on the job. Your immigration status does not affect your right to have a safe workplace. If a construction company or supervisor is negligent or careless and you get hurt, you have the right to seek compensation.
