Illinois Work Injuries to Undocumented Workers’ Attorneys
Attorneys Representing Workplace Injuries for Undocumented Workers’ in Aurora, Champaign, Chicago and all of Illinois
If you are an undocumented worker who has been seriously injured on the job, it is important to know that you still have rights and that the law will protect you. You are still entitled to seek benefits if you have been injured on that job, and your employee cannot retaliate against you for seeking those benefits.
At the law firm of Woodruff Johnson & Palermo, our lawyers will stand up for your rights and help to protect you if you have been injured at work. You should talk with us as soon as possible if you have been injured on the job, especially if your accident or injury has not been acknowledged by your employer or by your employer’s insurer.
Chicago Illegal Immigrant Work Injury Attorneys
Your immigration status does not affect your eligibility to be compensated. You can claim workers’ compensation benefits and lost income, even if you did not file taxes or were paid off the books in cash.
It is unethical for the opposition to threaten you with immigration matters for reporting an injury. Illegal aliens who are hurt at work can apply for workers’ compensation and file a lawsuit for additional third-party damages, when applicable.
