Immigrants and workplace accidents

Regarding employment immigration, multiple challenges may arise and employment immigrants could have to work through a number of issues, from finding a job to obtaining a visa. Unfortunately, some people face hardships even after they have relocated to the U.S., such as a workplace accident. At Cuevas, Garcia & Torres, our Miami law firm knows how difficult these issues can be for those who have moved to Florida from another country for work.

If you are hurt on the job, you should try to address the injury as soon as possible. Depending on the details surrounding your situation, you may be eligible for certain benefits that can help you recover. Immigrants who work in a variety of fields may suffer a workplace injury and it is vital for people in this position to recognize their rights as a worker. Unfortunately, some choose to stay quiet because they are afraid that if they speak up or try to obtain benefits they are eligible for they will lose their job or be deported from the country.

In addition to workplace injuries, you should be aware of some of the other problems you may face at work as an employment immigrant, such as discrimination based upon your national origin. Employment immigrants do not deserve to have their rights violated and should take advantage of benefits they are entitled to after being involved in an on-the-job accident.

On our immigrant visas page, you can find more about some of the other issues that employment immigrants have to deal with.
