Migrant employees who suffer an injury at work often avoid seeking compensation to help. Some workers may not believe that they are eligible for benefits. Others may also be worried about their ability to continue to live in the United States.
If you or someone you love suffered a workplace injury, you should speak with a lawyer as soon as possible. At Mitchell Law Corporation, we know what issues migrant and undocumented workers face after suffering an injury. We will take the time to help you understand your options and will fight to recover the maximum amount of compensation possible for you and your family.
Employers may try to tell migrants workers who are injured on the job that they are not eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits.

However, California is one of the few states that clearly allow migrant and undocumented workers to receive workers’ compensation without suffering the risk of a deportation.
