A Personal Understanding Of The Challenges Faced By Immigrants And Their Families

Bosch Law Firm, in the St. Paul area, is especially sensitive to the plight of immigrants and foreign-born workers who are injured on the job. Firm founder Gerald Bosch has firsthand knowledge of exactly what immigrant families go through as they try to make a living in the U.S.; he and his parents were immigrants, so he can empathize with the situations that foreign-born workers and their families encounter. He combines his personal background with his decades of experience as a lawyer to help those suffering from work injuries obtain the full workers’ compensation benefits they deserve.

If you or one of your loved ones has suffered a work-related injury, we are here for you. Interpretation services for Spanish, Hmong, Ethiopian and many other languages are available upon request. To arrange a free consultation about your specific case, call 651-333-8300.

A Work Injury Is Still An Injury, No Matter Where You Are From

Although an injury in any type of job can make a person eligible for workers’ compensation, immigrants are especially susceptible because they often work in more risky or dangerous jobs than workers born in the U.S., according to data collected by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). The BLS specifically notes that foreign-born workers are more likely than native-born workers to be employed in:

  • Service occupations (including food preparation and serving-related occupations, building and grounds cleaning, and maintenance occupations)
  • Production
  • Transportation
  • Material moving occupations
  • Construction
  • Maintenance occupations
  • Natural resources-related jobs

Mr. Bosch was raised to speak primarily English so that he could help his parents understand their adopted country. As such, he understands what sons, daughters and other English-speaking family members go through when their loved ones need help. He is extremely patient and does not let a language barrier stand in the way of providing excellent legal services to all of his clients.

Can I Lose My Job For Filing A Claim?

No, the law protects employees from any kind of workplace retaliation for filing a claim, including firing an employee. If your employer does fire you for filing a claim, they may face serious legal consequences.

How Long Can It Take To Receive Benefits?

If there are no mistakes or issues during the claims process, typical responses to a claim can take between 14 and 30 days. We can help you avoid these mistakes and reduce the time it takes to receive your compensation.
