View my website & give me a call for a FREE consultation if you are a California resident 877-427-2752 or you can email me at Michael@Kingofpersonalinjurylaw.com www.KingofPersonalInjuryLaw.com I am licensed in California only and my answers on Avvo assume California law. Answers provided by me are for general information only. They are not legal advice. Answers must not be relied upon. Legal advice must be based on the interplay between specific exact facts and the law. This forum does not allow for the discussion of that interplay. My answer to any specific question would likely be different if that interplay were explored during an attorney-client relationship. I provide legal advice during the course of an attorney-client relationship only. The exchange of information through this forum does not establish such a relationship. That relationship is established only by personal and direct consultation with me followed by the execution of a written attorney-client agreement signed by each of us. The communications on this website are not privileged or confidential and I assume no duty to anyone by my participation on Avvo or because I have answered or commented on a question. All legal proceedings involve deadlines and time limiting statutes. So that legal rights are not lost for failure to timely take appropriate action and because I do not provide legal advice in answer to any question, if you are an interested party you should promptly and personally consult with an attorney for legal advice.

Talk to a local personal injury AND a local immigration attorney before you put yourself out there in teh public setting!
In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but insted need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice. If you want to be completely sure of your rights, you must sit down with an experienced criminal defense attorney to be fully aware of your rights.
An illegal immigrant can file a lawsuit. Texas injury laws apply to all persons injured here, regardless of immigration status.
You can file a lawsuit even though you have no legal immigration status. However, if you file a claim for lost wages, past and future, you immigration status will come up as the defense will most likely argue you had no legal right to work. Make sure when you obtain an attorney for your personal injury claim that he consults with an immigration attorney. I have consulted on many such cases in my jurisdiction.
Immigration status is irrelevant ansd generally inadmissible in Texas. Anyone injured in Texas has a right to trial and compensation. Any questions please let me know.
Although Avvo makes it clear to consumers that attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship, some attorneys prefer to add their own disclaimers to answers. You can set your custom disclaimer here and it will be automatically added to your answers.

It is unethical for an attorney to threaten any type of criminal prosecution in order to gain an advantage in a civil matter. However, I can see an insurance defense attorney willing to raise this issue in subtle ways to prejudice your claim. In order to best protect yourself, you should start by obtaining competent personal injury counsel. Your attorney can help prevent an abuse of the system.
You should obtain needed medical care and treatment immediately and follow the doctor's advice. Do not give any statement to the adverse party or insurance company nor grant them access to any medical records. Photograph the injuries and the damage done to any property. Contact a personal injury attorney in your area as soon as possible so that you can protect your rights. You may also find it helpful to review the Legal Guides I have published on Avvo.com dealing with many of the issues you are now facing. The Guides can be accessed through my profile page on Avvo.com.
