Are You Eligible to File a Claim for Injuries Related to Camp Lejeune?
Can I recover lost wages if I am unable to work due to my injuries?
If you were injured in an accident and are unable to work as a result, you may be entitled to recover lost wages. Lost wages refer to the income you would have earned if you had not been injured and unable to work. It is important to note that you must be able to prove that you were unable to work and that your inability to work was caused by the injuries sustained in the accident.
Here are some important things to know about recovering lost wages:
- You may be entitled to recover lost wages if you were injured in a car accident, a slip and fall accident, or any other type of accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence.
- Lost wages can include both past and future earnings. In addition to the income you have already lost, you may also be entitled to compensation for future lost income if your injuries are expected to impact your ability to work in the future.
- To recover lost wages, you will need to provide evidence of your income, such as pay stubs or tax returns, as well as evidence that you were unable to work due to your injuries. This may include doctor’s notes or other medical documentation.
- If you were self-employed at the time of the accident, you may still be able to recover lost wages. However, the process of calculating lost wages for self-employed individuals can be more complex.
- In some cases, your employer may have a disability insurance policy that can provide benefits for lost wages. This can be especially helpful if your injuries are expected to keep you out of work for an extended period of time.
If you have been injured in an accident and are unable to work as a result, it is important to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney. An attorney can help you understand your legal rights and options, and work to help you recover the compensation you deserve.
