If I am Injured in a Car Accident, Will My Lost Wages Be Covered If I am Not Able to Work?

Yes, absolutely. Lost wages is one component of damages that we can pursue on behalf of our clients. Assuming, of course, that the proper documentation is there. What I mean by that is documentation from either you or your employer showing how many hours you were working before the accident versus how many you could work after. Tax returns. Things of that nature to show an actual impact to your wages. If you’ve lost wages as a result of a car accident, we can and absolutely will pursue that as an element of damages in your case.
