Many clients ask about recovering losses from being out of work after an accident. What they are generally asking about is whether they can get monetary compensation from the responsible party to make up for the fact that they could not work and earn money due to injuries that resulted from their auto accident. The answer to the question is that it depends. Recovering losses from being out of work after an accident generally depends on the following factors:
- Was the injury the true cause of the loss of work?
- Did missing work result in a loss of income or wages?
- Did the injured party who missed work keep record of the hours and dollars they missed out on due to the injury?
- Does the party claiming loss of wages have documentation from a doctor supporting their inability to perform their job duties?
- Could the injured party claiming loss of wages have engaged in alternate work or modified work to mitigate their lost wages?
All of these factors will affect the injured person’s ability for recovering losses from being out of work after an accident. Each case of lost wages is unique and sometimes the strength of a lost wages claim is not known until all the evidence has come in at the end of the case and has been evaluated by a professional. Accordingly, it is very important to seek legal representation from a knowledgeable auto accident attorney early in your case so that you can prepare to make a strong claim for losses from being out of work due to an accident injury.
