Does My Immigration Status Affect My Right to Sue?
You have legal rights, no matter what.
Many workers in New York are non-citizens, including undocumented immigrants. If you’re in that situation, you may be hesitant to seek compensation for accident-related injuries because you are afraid of possible deportation or other consequences involving your immigration status.
Here’s what you need to know: if you are injured in New York, you have the right to sue for compensation for your injuries under New York law, regardless of your citizenship status – and exercising your right to sue should not affect your immigration situation.
Keogh Crispi, P.C. will protect you and help you seek the compensation you deserve if you have been injured on a construction site or other accident caused by negligence. Our legal team can help you obtain:
- Medical care: We can help you get the medical care you need from doctors who understand your situation and will help you.
- Money: Being undocumented will not hinder you from seeking monetary awards for your injuries. We have the experience and skill to help you pursue the best possible financial award.
You need experienced legal guidance, no matter your immigration status. Don't let fear prevent you from getting the compensation you are entitled to receive; contact us today for help.
