The struggle between fear, circumstances and hope
Fear and anguish are the most terrible feelings that any human being can have, and even more if the threat of deportation persecutes you every day preventing you from being yourself, and having absolute freedom to enjoy your life.
This is how millions of Hispanics live in the United States, especially the undocumented, who, terrified by the wave of anti-immigrant hatred, survive in their homes, leaving only to go to work and buy groceries.
Even with fear of being arrested and deported, people do not stop fighting to have a better life.
Many perform risky work in order to bring food to their tables.
This is exactly what happened to a 35-year-old Hispanic immigrant man. He had a temporary work permit, so he worked legally as a bricklayer in the state of California.
The young Hispanic man suffered an accident at work and did not want to report the incident to request compensation since his permission had expired a short time before, and he was afraid of being deported.
Advice from experts, the path to solution
What he did not know is that, by law in the United States, all people hired in a company, even if they are undocumented, have the right to claim compensation.
In the US, when reporting a work accident case in the courts, it is completely illegal to ask people’s immigration status, and the judicial system does not share information on migration.
Thanks to his wife’s recommendation, the young man reported his case on time with lawyers at Grupo MedLegal® , who filed the claim so that he could obtain his compensation and the benefits he was entitled by law.
An important right in a trial for a work accident is that once the process has begun, and being legally in the country, if a positive sentence is obtained by winning the case, the worker receives his compensation whether physically or not in the US. Your check will arrive at the place where you are located.
Trial won, money guaranteed
With the labor compensation trial won, the young hispanic man will receive his check in his native country.
Fortunately, he can recover his health completely and have the money to cover his expenses. If he had not reported the accident, he would have had health problems and the need to find a job to pay for medicine and food.
