Undocumented Resident Car Accident
There are a number of reasons that an undocumented resident may be in the United States. Anyone who lives in or visits the United States can pursue compensation after a car accident with a negligent driver, regardless of immigration status, as long as they were not at fault and were insured. Do not let fear of deportation keep you from the compensation you deserve. Here is what you should know about getting compensated for car accident injuries as an undocumented resident.
Right to Pursue Compensation After an Undocumented Immigrant Car Accident
Legal immigration status does not impact a person’s ability to file a claim for compensation. Whether the undocumented resident is in the country to live, work, visit, or attend school does not matter.
Qualifying for Compensation After an Undocumented Resident Car Accident
Filing a claim for compensation as an undocumented resident requires certain factors to be present, including:
- Undocumented residents must have car insurance coverage
- They must remain at the scene and give accurate information
- They must seek medical care for their injuries and follow up with all treatment and care instructions
Risk of Deportation
Fear of deportation is the most common reason that undocumented residents choose not to pursue compensation for injuries and damages. An undocumented person cannot be deported for filing a compensation claim, but there are actions that can cause them to be deported.
- Leaving the scene can result in hit-and-run charges, arrest, and deportation.
- Giving false information can lead to charges of fraud, arrest, and deportation.
- Failure to carry insurance can result in charges and fines, potentially resulting in a judgment against you for accident injuries.

They were able to direct me with medical care questions, and advocate on my behalf with insurance companies.
Alex and his team were my rock after I was hit by a car while riding my bike. They were able to direct me with medical care questions, advocate on my behalf with insurance companies, and really listen on days where I had pain and was completely frustrated with my insurance company and their lack of response. Highly recommend!!!!
