My office handles lots of undocumented worker cases in Texas, but it's pretty much federal law that it's not relevant to the suit. In the one case I've heard of the other side reporting someone, $25,000.00 in sanctions were granted as the judge found it akin to extortion.

Sorry to learn about your friend. Absolutely, and without further delay, have your friend contact a local and qualified personal injury litigation attorney. The attorney will protect your friends rights and help him to be treated fairly. This is important. Search Avvo, call your state's trial lawyers association, ask those you trust and respect for recommendations. Interview a few lawyers. Look to hire the one who he is most comfortable with and confident in. Good luck,

I am assuming this accident occurred in Florida. He does have legal rights. If he is undocumented that should not be relevant to how the accident occurred, who was at fault, the relative fault of either party, and the injuries and non-economic damages such as pain and suffering, mental anguish, as well as medical bills now and in the future. The only relevance that could be at issue is regarding lost wages/loss of earning capacity. If he is not paying taxes then one has to consider whether to make a lost wage claim/loss of earning capacity and evaluate whether such a claim should be made under te facts of this case. Without doubt he should speak with an attorney as soon as possible to evaluate these issues, and his potential case.

Your friend's status as an illegal alien does not impair his ability to assert a claim for injuries suffered by the wrongs of another person. If your friend has serious injuries, it is important that he speak with a qualified and aggressive attorney who is experienced in handling trucking cases as soon as possible. Your friend's ability to protect his rights, and potentially those of his family, depends upon his selection of appropriate counsel.
