As an undocumented worker in New York City, you may live in fear. You may stay in the shadows out of concern of being discovered and possibly being deported, leaving your family without its breadwinner.

Construction work is difficult but can be made dangerous when workers, especially undocumented workers, are often pressured to work in unsafe conditions without proper safety equipment. Undocumented workers can be too intimidated to report work sites and work conditions and practices that are dangerous.

If you are injured on the job, you do have rights. You do not have to be a citizen to collect compensation for your medical bills, lost earnings, pain and suffering, and other damages. You can trust the experienced personal injury attorneys at O’Dwyer & Bernstien, LLP, to inform you of your rights, get you top dollar for your injuries and loss of earnings, and protect your rights.

“We want to re-emphasize to the Latino community and all undocumented workers that they have the same rights once they’re on the job as any New York citizen.”— Senior partner Brian O’Dwyer, as told to The New York Times

While past results are no guarantee of future success, we have a successful track record of helping undocumented injured workers get compensation. For example, we were able to obtain a settlement of $4 million for a 25-year-old laborer who fell from the edge of a high-rise that was under construction and a settlement of $2.75 million for a 22-year-old laborer who suffered head trauma as the result of a four-story fall on a construction site.
