The Insurance Companies Try to Limit the Rights of Undocumented New Yorkers
In an effort to limit court awards, insurance company lawyers have tried to prevent undocumented workers from recovering compensation for their lost earnings. But they have been unsuccessful. Both New York State Courts and the United States Federal Courts have ruled that undocumented workers are entitled to all of the same rights in a lawsuit as a U.S. citizen and cannot be discriminated against.
The law also provides that all injured New Yorkers who are unable to work can sue to recover their lost earnings from the day of their personal injury accident to the time of the trial, as well as for future lost earnings if their personal injuries will prevent them from returning to work.
