Lost Wages & Income Compensation
If a person was injured in an accident they have the right to seek compensation for lost wages. By hiring a personal injury attorney you may put yourself in a better position to collect lost wages in a lawsuit. Americans understand how hard it can be to survive without a steady income. When a person has been injured they may be out of work for weeks or months at a time. For some people they may never be able to return back to work.
Most people are unaware they can collect on lost wages because losing time at work can be the least of their worries. However supporting yourself and your family during these tough economic times will soon become a priority for anyone injured. In most cases when an accident is severe in nature, people are forced to cash in their investments, sell their homes, and deplete their savings because they have no steady income coming into the household.
If a person has been injured as a result of another's negligence, the injured party has the right to seek recovery for lost wages. Lost wages may also extend out to overtime and future wages. For instance, if a person can prove they work overtime hours, the attorney may be able to get projected overtime wages compensated as well.
If the accident results in a person being out of work for years, the injured party may sue for future lost of wages based upon their projected earnings. If the accident results in permanent disability and the victim is unable to return to work, they can sue for projected lost of wages and expenses resulting to changing a career path.
Lost wages can be a significant expense to the defense. While it may be limited to insurance coverage of the negligent party, it can be a compensation item that pays hundreds of thousands of dollars to the victim.
