From advocating for your rights in court to dealing with insurance companies, we're here to ensure that you receive fair compensation for your injuries, lost wages, and other damages.


Your Rights as an Illegal Immigrant


Many illegal immigrants are unaware of their rights in personal injury cases. It's important to know that your immigration status does not preclude you from seeking compensation for injuries. At Curan & Ahlers, we assure you that seeking legal assistance will not negatively affect your immigration status. Protecting your rights is our top priority.

Types of Compensation Available to Illegal Immigrants Injured in an Accident


At Curan & Ahlers, we firmly believe that every individual has the right to fair compensation after suffering injuries due to someone else's negligence, regardless of immigration status. Understanding the types of compensation that may be available to you as an illegal immigrant is crucial in recognizing the full extent of your rights and how you can seek justice.


Our team of dedicated illegal immigrant injury lawyers is committed to ensuring that our clients are fully compensated for their losses. Here are the types of compensation that may be available to illegal immigrants who have been injured in an accident:


Medical Expenses
You may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses incurred as a result of the accident. This includes emergency room visits, hospitalization, surgeries, medication, medical equipment, and any ongoing medical treatments or rehabilitation. Our goal is to ensure that your current and future medical needs are adequately covered, without the burden of these costs falling on you or your family.


Lost Wages and Earning Capacity
If your injuries prevent you from working, you may be able to recover lost wages for the time you've been unable to work. Additionally, if your injuries affect your ability to earn a living in the future, compensation for lost earning capacity can also be sought. Our illegal immigrant personal injury attorneys will work to quantify these losses accurately to ensure you're compensated fairly.


Pain and Suffering
Beyond the physical injuries, accidents can lead to significant pain and suffering, including physical discomfort, emotional distress, and a reduced quality of life. While these damages are more subjective, they are just as real and deserving of compensation. We are skilled in presenting these non-economic damages to ensure they are recognized and compensated appropriately.


Punitive Damages
In cases where the defendant's conduct was particularly egregious or reckless, punitive damages may be awarded. These are not tied directly to the losses you have suffered but are intended to punish the wrongdoer and deter similar conduct in the future. While not common, our team will explore if punitive damages are a possibility in your case.


Loss of Consortium
For families of illegal immigrants who are severely injured, compensation may also be available for loss of consortium. This type of compensation is intended for the spouse or close family members for the loss of companionship, affection, and support due to the injuries suffered.

Justice for All Injury Victims

At Curan & Ahlers, we believe in justice for all, irrespective of immigration status. Our team is ready to stand by you, offering compassionate, professional, and expert legal representation. Reach out today, and let us help you navigate your personal injury claim with the dignity and respect you deserve.
