Navigating personal injury claims as an undocumented immigrant can be challenging. A frequent question that arises is, “Can undocumented immigrants sue for personal injury in Texas?” The short answer is yes.
What to Consider When Filing a Personal Injury Claim
The US legal system protects your right to compensation if you sustained injuries due to another’s negligence. Your immigration status doesn’t prevent you from seeking justice.
In Texas, undocumented individuals can file lawsuits against negligent parties, just as any American citizen can. Whether for medical bills, emotional distress, or economic losses, the courts assess your claim impartially, regardless of legal status.
Specific aspects tied to your status might influence potential compensation amounts. For instance, claiming a loss of earning capacity with evidence of an impending deportation could impact the settlement amount.
