New York Lawyers Say Immigration Status Should Not Deter Accident Victims from Seeking Justice

The experts at the Manhattan-based Lurie Law Firm, a leading New York City personal injury law practice, say that those who live and work in the country, regardless of their immigration status, have no reason to fear seeking help.

Online PR News – 14-September-2009 – New York, New York – The attorneys at the Law Firm of Lurie, Ilchert, Mac Donnell and Ryan, LLP (, a leading New York City law firm that specializes in personal injury law, say that countless accident victims do not get the representation or the justice they deserve because they fear that their immigration status will be held against them or that they may be jailed and deported.

“We are able to win personal injury cases even if the injured client is not in the United States legally and was working without the proper permits,” says partner George W. Ilchert, Esq. “We have handled countless cases of this kind and none of our clients has ever been deported or otherwise restrained as a result of our law firm representing them in a personal injury case.”

According to Ilchert, there are many undocumented individuals living and working in the New York area, particularly in high-risk jobs like construction. As a result, he says, these individuals are particularly helpless when injured on the job.

“There is a level of fear that comes from living and working in a foreign country, particularly if you are there illegally,” says Ilchert. “In addition to not know their rights, many accident victims are afraid to seek the help that they deserve because they don’t understand how the system works.”

The attorneys at Lurie Law Firm are well versed in all types of personal injury and accident cases, regardless of the victim’s immigration status. With more than 30 years experience, there are no problems or defense strategies that the team has not faced and successfully overcome when possible.

“We fight for the right of accident victims,” Ilchert says, “and at Lurie Law, everyone is equal and deserves justice.”
