Steve DimopoulosQ: Can an illegal immigrant recover personal injury compensation in Nevada?

A: Generally yes. But as you can imagine, all sorts of interesting issues arise in this context. For example, injury settlements typically include future medical expense and future wage loss components. These damages can be greatly mitigated upon a showing that the claimant is an undocumented immigrant.
