Modesto Seasonal Work-Related Injury Attorney
Seasonal labor is often physical work, putting the people who work these jobs at risk of injury and disability.

Immigration Status And Workers’ Compensation
A person need not be a United States citizen to apply for workers’ compensation. One needs only to have been injured while performing the duties of a job in this country. Immigrants may face certain limits on the amount of benefits they can receive through workers’ compensation, but they are still eligible to apply. If you are a seasonal worker who has been hurt on the job, take advantage of your free initial consultation and discuss your case with an English- or Spanish-speaking lawyer.
