Israel Hernandez contracted HIV on the job as a janitor in a medical offices building. The trash in one of the units was not disposed of safely, so when Israel pushed the trash down in the trash can, three different times, he was pricked with a needle containing HIV. He became ill and he is unable to work. To recover money for lost future wages in a personal injury lawsuit, an alien must either be in legal permanent status, or qualify for the status. Even though Israel is undocumented, he may have qualified. Ms. Yardum-Hunter testified about his qualification. Mr. Hernandez won a $4.2 million dollar judgment.
