If you’ve suffered serious injuries in an accident, don’t let your immigration status stop you from bringing a claim in court.  The Courts of the United States are open to citizens and non-citizens alike.  Your immigration status in the United States has no effect on your right to seek protection and remedies under U.S. law.

Immigration Status & Personal Injury Claims

The Fourteenth Amendment to the United States constitution and the Connecticut constitution guarantee access to our courts, due process and equal protection of the laws to every person, regardless of alienage or citizenship.

One of the most important purposes of the law is to help people; all people.  If you’re in the United States and somebody has wrongfully harmed you and caused you to suffer serious injuries, the law compels the person who is responsible for your injuries to compensate you.

If you’re the victim of an accident, don’t allow your citizenship or immigration status to stop you from seeking justice in a Connecticut court.  The law’s focus is your right to be compensated, not your immigration status in the United States.
