Legal Help for Immigrants Injured On The Job
While some politicians may not like to acknowledge it, the American economy depends upon the work of millions of immigrants, some of them without proper legal paperwork. These immigrant workers play an important role in construction work, the garment industry, the food industry, agricultural and garden work, and as domestic help.

You DO Have A Right To Workers’ Comp
While immigrant workers are denied some of the rights that Americans have, injured immigrant workers – even undocumented workers – ARE covered by workers’ compensation.
If you are an alien worker here, with or without a work permit, visa or green card, and you are injured on the job, you can get workers’ compensation benefits for your injuries. Don’t be afraid to bring your workers comp injury case to our law firm. We will explain your rights and help you get the compensation you deserve.
You Are Protected
The most important message we have for injured immigrant workers is this:
- Do NOT take a payoff from your boss. It is not necessary and if you do so, your boss can take advantage of you. You won’t get all the money you are entitled to and if your injury continues, your boss and his or her promises will disappear.
Your Workers’ Compensation Will Not Be Reduced
Even if you are an undocumented worker, workers’ compensation benefits are awarded to you just as injured legal residents and citizens are. Your benefits will not be lowered because of your immigration status.
We understand this is a difficult time for you. We will listen and then explain your rights in clear, understandable terms in your own language. We are accessible and attentive; you can always call with questions. Call 917-639-5350.
