Immigrants play an important part in today’s economy, and as such, are as much entitled to workers’ compensation benefits as anyone else. The workers’ compensation attorneys at Kaplan Lawyers PC want to stress that even undocumented injured workers are entitled to benefits.
Amongst alien workers, there is often a fear of coming forward and presenting your case. Remember, ALL workers, regardless of the status of their work permit, visa, or green card, are entitled to workers’ compensation if they have been injured on the job.
