Legal Rights of Undocumented Immigrants

In the United States, the law does not discriminate based on immigration status when it comes to the right to sue for personal injury. This means that in New York, undocumented immigrants have the same rights as any citizen or legal resident to file a lawsuit if they have been injured due to someone else's negligence or wrongdoing. New York State law and various case laws support this stance, ensuring that justice does not see citizenship.

Challenges Faced by Illegal Immigrants in Personal Injury Cases

Undocumented immigrants may hesitate to pursue legal action due to fear of deportation, language barriers, and a lack of knowledge about their rights. At Curan & Ahlers, we understand these challenges intimately.
