Immigration Issues In Workers' Compensation

Helping you navigate the workers' compensation system in Arizona.



Immigration Status Does Not Affect Your Rights To Workers’ Compensation

Many immigrants worry about filing a workers' compensation claim because they fear their immigration status might affect their entitlement to receive benefits or medical treatment. If you are injured on the job, you have a right to receive workers' compensation regardless of your immigration status. However, it is essential to have an experienced attorney on your side to protect your rights every step of the way and to understand the complexities that arise throughout such a case.

The founding attorney of Rios Law Firm PLLC, Crystal Rios Ramos, has extensive experience working with injured immigrant and undocumented workers. She knows what needs to be done when filing a request for benefits to protect you. You need someone you can trust to help you obtain the full compensation you deserve, and you can rely on attorney Rios to protect your rights and your future.

Protecting Your Rights To Compensation

Arizona law includes undocumented immigrants in the statute that provides the right to workers' compensation. Though state law gives you the right to workers' compensation regardless of your immigration status, you may still run into obstacles with your employer or their insurance company. They may try to deny your workers' compensation claim or try to intimidate you into not filing a claim. Therefore, it is important to consult with a knowledgeable and experienced attorney to discuss your options and rights.

Rios Law Firm PLLC can help you if:

  • Your claim is denied
  • Your employer's insurance company denies you medical treatment
  • You cannot work, but the insurance company refuses to pay compensation
  • The insurance company closes your claim, but your treating doctor recommends continued treatment
