Can Illegal Immigrants Sue for Personal Injury?
Regardless of whether you are a legal or illegal immigrant, you have the right to recover compensation for injuries that you have sustained after an accident caused by another person's negligence. You cannot be deported if you report an accident, seek medical treatment after the accident, and file a lawsuit. For example, if you are undocumented and were involved in a car accident that resulted in injuries, you may file an injury claim against the negligent party.

What Damages Can Be Recovered?
If you are an undocumented immigrant and have been injured in an accident, there are many damages you can recover through compensation won in a personal injury case.
The compensation recovered can pay for these damages:
- Medical Bills
- Future Medical Expenses
- Lost Wages
- Lost Earning Capacity
- Pain & Suffering
Car Accident Injuries
Even if you’re undocumented, you should follow the same steps and procedures following an accident as any other driver. Fleeing the scene of an accident will make matters much worse for you and could result in hit-and-run charges that ultimately end in arrest and deportation.
If you have been in an accident, you should:
- Pull your car off to the side of the road.
- Check on the other driver and trade contact and insurance information.
- If the police arrive, give them your real name and all of your contact information. You do not have to disclose your immigration status to the police officer. Remember not to say anything that might admit fault to the accident but be cooperative with the officer.
- Seek medical attention as soon as possible. Denying medical treatment or acting as if your injuries aren’t severe will make getting compensation that much harder.
In car accidents where the other driver was at fault either because they were drunk, reckless, distracted, or otherwise negligent, you may be able to file a civil personal injury lawsuit to recover damages for injuries. Because immigrant injury law can be complex, many immigrants choose to work with a personal injury attorney who has worked with immigrants in the past.
