Personal Injury Lost Wages
Dealing With Lost Wages in Your Personal Injury Claim
Handling the emotional and physical repercussions in your personal injury claim can be difficult enough, but when you consider the financial ramifications as well, things can become truly overwhelming. Of course, financial issues aren’t just limited to your medical bills. In fact, proving your loss of wages is a key component that must be considered.
At Blackburn and Green, our team of lost wages lawyers handles everything for you to help alleviate the stress of your situation. You can rest assured that your lost wages claim is processed correctly, adding to your full compensation.
What are Lost Wages?
Lost wages are simply the earnings you miss from work as a result of your injuries. A lost wages claim makes it possible to get paid for the hours that you miss based upon your pay at the time of the accident.
Of course, understanding the lost wages definition and applying it to your case are two different things. You don’t want to leave it up to the insurance company or another third party to calculate something as important as lost wages. As a result, it’s always best to turn to a lost wages lawyer to help handle your lost wages claim.
What Does Wage Compensation Entail?
Lost wages due to your injuries are a common component of personal injury claims, because extensive injuries can cause victims to miss work for weeks, or possibly even months.
Wage compensation includes both work that you miss due to the initial trauma, as well as work that you miss for ongoing treatment for your injuries. As a result, it becomes even more important to properly calculate the extent of your ongoing treatment when it comes to your lost wages claim.
Additionally, it’s important to keep in mind that you will receive compensation for lost wages regardless of whether or not you would have been allotted the time as sick or vacation pay.
