Blandon Law Helps Get Over $2 Million for Client
We are not only immigration attorneys but also advocates for our clients’ families. An undocumented client in Nashville — without a work permit or a Social Security card — was working construction. The scaffold beneath him broke and he fell 20 feet, landing right on his face. It is a miracle he survived. When his wife called us, Blandon Law matched the family with a member of our countrywide network of personal injury lawyers. Juan and his family recovered over $2 million plus other payments for his required lifetime care. In the process, Juan’s sickly wife bravely transformed into Juan’s caretaker.
Work Permit and Immigration Status of the Injured
The insurance company wanted to pay less because Juan did not have a green card, or even a work permit. Blandon Law helped his personal injury lawyer fight the insurance company by explaining Juan’s immigration status. Getting more money for the construction accident injury meant we had to explain that Juan was allowed to live in the United States. The immigration authorities know his situation and know his address. That’s the advocate services we provided: talking to his personal injury attorney, talking to his worker’s compensation attorney, writing a letter to Juan’s construction company representatives. We did this for free because Juan and his wife worked with a personal injury attorney we recommended.
Questions About Construction Accidents
An undocumented person injured in a construction accident needs more than just medical help (which is the right of anyone hurt in an emergency). Have a family member call Blandon Law immediately and we will answer your questions:
- Will I get fired for reporting the construction accident?
- What should I do if my employer refuses to pay my medical bills?
- Can I file for workers’ compensation if I do not have a work permit or am undocumented?
- Will I get money for pain and suffering?
These were the questions Juan’s wife had when she called us with the terrible news of the accident. We answered those, and many others, over the years that we have represented her family. Yes, we connect clients with the right attorneys – experienced and honest – to handle the money claims, the doctors, and the therapists. Afterwards, Blandon Law, also experienced and honest, helps those attorneys help you.
