At the Licatesi Law Group, we hold a strong conviction that all individuals, irrespective of immigration status, are entitled to just treatment and equitable compensation in cases involving injuries caused by the negligence of others. We are here to dispel the widespread belief that undocumented laborers are ineligible to seek legal recourse or receive compensation for injuries sustained on the job. One of the protected rights you possess, regardless of your immigration status, is the entitlement to compensation for your injuries. If you file a litigation with us, your status will not be affected and will not be affected; we are dedicated to ensuring that every client receives the compensation and justice to which they are entitled.

            Undocumented laborers are granted equivalent legal protections as resident employees in the state of New York. Adherence to the right to a secure workplace and prohibition of discrimination on the basis of immigration status are both explicit provisions of New York Labor Law. This means that you have the right to seek compensation for injuries sustained on the job as a result of hazardous working conditions or employer negligence, regardless of your immigration status.

            Therefore, as an undocumented laborer, what measures can you take to strengthen your case? It is of the utmost importance to obtain medical attention without delay following the accident. Ensuring your health and well-being are of the utmost importance, and it is critical to provide comprehensive documentation of your injuries in order to construct a strong legal argument. Additionally, immediately notify your employer of the accident and request an incident report in order to document the incident’s specifics.

            Moreover, gathering evidence is vital. It is crucial that you obtain photographic documentation of the accident site, including any visible injuries and hazardous conditions that may have contributed to the incident. Collect the contact information of any potential witnesses to the accident. This evidence will serve as a damning demonstration of the severity of your injuries and proof of liability. It is important to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney who is familiar with the unique challenges undocumented laborers face following the accident. We have a history of successfully securing equitable compensation for the injuries sustained by undocumented laborers and advocating for their rights at The Licatesi Law Group. We will diligently advocate for you in order to secure the compensation that is rightfully yours.

            However, for what types of workplace accidents and injuries are undocumented laborers eligible for compensation? Any injury sustained in the workplace as a result of hazardous working conditions or employer negligence. This include accidents involving machinery, slip-and-fall accidents, repetitive motion injuries, and more. You have the right to seek compensation for any type of injury that transpired during the course of your employment.

            It is crucial to recognize that you have rights as an undocumented laborer, including the entitlement to compensation for any injuries sustained. Your immigration status should not prevent you from pursuing the compensation and justice to which you are entitled. If you have sustained a workplace injury, please contact The Licaresi Law Group immediately at (516) 227-2662, for your free consultation.
