Immigration & Personal Injury Cases

How an Austin Immigration Lawyer Can Help You

One of the most conflicting and difficult matters immigrants face are those that involve the legal system. Similar to criminal law cases and family law cases, personal injury claims involving immigration issues result in added complexities that almost always require experienced and knowledgeable attorneys to resolve. While immigrants of any residency status are generally entitled to many of the same personal injury rights as U.S. citizens, there are a few important legal elements that must be addressed in order for them to recover their damages. If you, an employee or a family member are facing personal injury cases as either a plaintiff or a defendant, our Austin immigration attorneys at The Díaz Firm, PLLC are prepared to provide you with the legal assistance needed to reach a successful resolution.

Representation for Injured Victims

The United States Supreme Court has recognized that lawfully admitted foreign citizens have the same rights as U.S. citizens when it comes to filing personal injury claims. This means that permanent residents, or green card holders, and nonimmigrant visa holders can pursue legal action that allows them to recover monetary compensation for the damages they suffered, including:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Emotional injuries (pain and suffering)

When foreign citizens who are in the United States illegally are injured by another's negligence, personal injury claims can become incredibly complex. Both Federal and Texas state law have been notoriously unsettled on the issue of the rights of illegal immigrants to file personal injury claims and their eligibility to pursue damages will depend on a number of factors. Whether injuries are sustained on the job, in an accident, or as the result of a professional's negligence, injured victims require the aggressive legal advocacy our Austin immigration attorneys can provide.
