Lost wages from time off work is one of the many things a car accident attorney will seek compensation for on your behalf.
When you’re injured in a car accident, there’s a good chance the doctor will probably demand or strongly encourage you to take some time off work to heal. And it’s in your best interest to take that time off.
The time you actually take off work will of course depend on the severity of your injuries. But if the accident wasn’t your fault, then you shouldn’t be held liable for that missed pay. That’s why lost wages from time off work is one of the major determining factors in the amount of compensation a car accident attorney will work to get you.
Even if your company allows sick days and vacation that you use when you’re healing, those are days you could’ve used in the future for actual vacation.
Other things you’re entitled to compensation for include medical bills, pain, suffering and more.
That’s why it’s important to speak to an experienced car accident attorney if the accident wasn’t your fault. You should even speak to an attorney if you aren’t sure whose fault it was.
You need an attorney you can trust. You need an attorney who’s experienced and detailed enough to investigate every nook and cranny of your case to determine who’s liable for the car accident and whether or not you’re entitled to compensation, and how much. And you need an attorney who’ll walk and talk you through every step of this process.
