You should know that if you were injured in an accident you can sue for compensation for your injuries, and it does not matter if you are a citizen of the United States or if you are here as an illegal immigrant.

Hurt on the job:

If you were hurt on the job, you have a right to obtain your Workers’ Compensation benefits, and also have the right to sue what is called a “third-party”, which is someone who is not your boss, to obtain compensation for your injuries and your pain and suffering.

It also does not matter even if you were working in what is known as, “off the books”, you can still receive Workers’ Compensation benefits, and you also still have the right to sue a “third-party” to obtain compensation for your injuries. Workers’ Compensation deals with persons getting hurt on the job. It doesn’t matter whether they are working on the books or off the books, you just have to prove that you were working when you were injured.

Hurt in an accident:

If you were injured in an accident, you also have the right to sue for compensation for your injuries, whether your injuries were caused by a car accident, a slip and fall or any other type of accident.
