I was involved in a traumatic car accident and was rear ended. Cost of fixing my car is ~$5k which other party acknowledge full responsibility. I took time off from work for almost a week now due to some back & neck pains after the accident I was advised by doctors to rest for 2 weeks and is being seen regularly. I filed claim on other party's insurance to help cover my medical's(since I cannot use my own health insurance) & time away from work while I'm getting better.
However, 2weeks of non payment of loss wages( since I ran out of vacation/sick leave) is too much burden since I live paycheck by paycheck and have the only income in a family of 4. Can I file Medical Leave of Absence for 2wks? How will this MLOA affect the insurance claim particularly on loss wages? Pls help advise!!!
