If You’re Not A Citizen Or A Legal Resident, Are You Prohibited From Filing A Personal Injury Lawsuit?

Most of us know if you are injured in an accident and someone else is to blame, you are probably entitled to compensation. But many people think your ability to collect money damages for your injury is tied to your legal status.

So we put the question to South Florida personal injury attorney, Nelson Peña. Nelson, if you are not a citizen or a legal resident, are you prohibited from filing a personal injury lawsuit?

Absolutely not! Luckily In Florida and actually in the entire United States, you can bring a personal injury action regardless of your INS status.
