How Do I Replace Lost Wages?

How Do I Replace Lost Wages?

Your bills don’t stop when you are laid up following an accident, but sometimes your wages do. If your injury is preventing you from working, contact our attorneys for help.
When you are injured due to the negligence of another person, you have a right to seek compensation for everything you have lost, including wages if you are unable to work. It is important to get a note from your doctor stating that your injury prevents you from working.

The insurance company covering the person who injured you will not pay any damages until your case is resolved. That may be several months after your accident, so you may need other sources of disability income until your case is resolved. Our lawyers offer a free initial consultation to discuss your options.
One source of income replacement is your Personal Injury Protection, or PIP. If you are injured in an accident, PIP covers 80 percent of lost wages if you are unable to work. PIP coverage is limited, however, and you may not have enough coverage to meet your needs. You may also have disability insurance through your employer.
It’s important to contact our lawyers as soon as possible after your accident so we can:

  • Collect and preserve evidence of liability
  • Identify all sources of coverage for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages
  • Document your losses so you can recover full compensation
