As if getting into a car accident isn’t bad enough, many injured drivers face the risk of losing valuable time from work. If you have suffered injuries from an auto accident and are unable to work for any period of time, you may be entitled to recover damages for lost wages. Depending on the severity of your injuries and the amount of time missed from work, you may also be able to seek compensation for pensions, bonuses, commissions, and increases in salary tied to changes in the cost of living.

From the moment of your accident, it is important to begin collecting documentation. Doctor’s notes, pay stubs, and employer’s notes to show time missed from work as well as lost wages are important to your case. (If you are self-employed, getting proper documentation may be more difficult but a skilled attorney can help you through the process.)

Even if you are able to return to work after your accident, whether in a reduced capacity or diminished hours, you can still make a claim for lost wages. Getting into a car accident can be financially difficult and recovering your lost wages can seem overwhelming. Let an experienced attorney help you every step of the way.
