Immigrant workers perform some of America’s most dangerous jobs, suffer a disproportionate number of workplace injuries and deaths and are routinely denied workers’ compensation benefits.
If you have been injured in the course of your job, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Period.
You are entitled to benefits even if:
- You are an undocumented worker
- You have a green card but are not an American citizen
- You are paid in cash
- You are paid off the books
- Your boss told you he/she has no insurance
- Your boss threatened to fire you if you file a claim
Regardless of your immigration status, if you have suffered a work injury, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. You can trust the Durham workers’ compensation attorneys at Velasquez & Associates to fight for your rights and help you obtain the benefits you deserve.
