Accidents Involving Immigrants

Accidents Involving Immigrants

At Bishop Legal, we believe that immigrants should be treated fairly, regardless of their immigration status, when they have been wrongfully injured by another party. In our more than 15 years of practice, our law firm has successfully represented thousands of immigrant clients.

Spanish Speaking Lawyers and Paralegals

We enjoy helping immigrant communities because they greatly appreciate our assistance in helping them recover from a serious injury. Immigrants are at a greater disadvantage than the general public when they are wrongfully injured as they may face a language barrier and may not be as familiar with their rights, accident claims, and the legal process.

Unlike most firms, our office has attorneys and paralegals who are fluent in Spanish. We have received hundreds of referrals from highly satisfied immigrant clients. We play an active role in the Latino community and have supported local youth soccer teams and cultural events.

Our law firm has represented clients from all over the world including Somalia, Latvia, and Peru. We also have a paralegal who speaks Russian to better serve the local community.

Types of Cases

Our law firm represents seriously injured immigrants involved in:

  • Construction Site Accidents
  • Auto Accidents Including Trucks, Motorcycles, and Pedestrians
  • Commercial Fishing Accidents
  • Railroad Work Accidents
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect
  • Unsafe or Defective Product Accidents
  • Premises Liability and Negligent Security
  • Other Catastrophic Injury

Immigrants Should Not Work In Fear

Many labor-intensive jobs, such as construction, commercial fishing, and railroad work, are performed by individuals who are not legal U.S. residents. If an immigrant is injured at work, they should not suffer in pain, attempting to hide their injuries while working to avoid retaliation from their employer.

Immigrants have legal rights. They have a right to make a workers’ compensation claim and a right to compensation when another party is responsible in causing an injury. In the most tragic of cases, we also represent the deceased’s family in a wrongful death lawsuit.

Experienced Trial Attorneys

Our lawyers fight for fair and full compensation for wrongfully injured accident victims. This includes payment for medical bills, lost wages, future financial considerations, future medical needs, and compensatory damages for pain and suffering.

We have experienced trial lawyers who have successfully litigated cases all the way to the Washington State Supreme Court. We stand up for our seriously injured clients and don’t relent in the face of powerful corporations and government agencies who attempt to evade payment. Our lawyers have recovered several multi-million-dollar settlements for seriously injured immigrant clients.
