Undocumented Immigrant Car Accidents
According to the Migration Policy Institute, the state of Illinois has an estimated 487,000 undocumented immigrants, the fifth-highest illegal immigrant population in the U.S. In 2013, Illinois began issuing Temporary Visitor Driver’s Licenses (TVDL) to undocumented immigrants who do not have social security numbers, thus allowing them to drive legally with the purchase of car insurance, however many still do not know they have rights. Do not let fear of deportation hold you back from receiving the compensation you deserve. If you are or a loved one is an undocumented immigrant, and you’ve been involved in a car accident, Agruss Law Firm is here for you every step of the way to ensure that your rights are protected, and you are fully compensated for your injuries and losses.
Undocumented immigrants are often afraid to stand up for their rights or unaware of the fact that they have rights in U.S. courts. Most undocumented immigrants do not know that all law enforcement agencies are prohibited from searching court documents for immigration status and that immigration status has absolutely no bearing on their ability to sue for compensation if they are involved in an accident.
If an undocumented immigrant is involved in a car accident, they are entitled to the same compensation as legal U.S citizens, including:
- Pain and Suffering
- Lost wages, lost opportunities, or a lost job
- Medical treatments including, ER care, medical procedures, rehab, and specialists
- Fair compensation for permanent, life-long disabilities
