When Your Car Accident Injuries Keep You from Working
When you are injured in a car accident, one of your primary concerns may be whether anyone will cover the costs of all of the medical treatment for your injuries. However, other significant losses may arise, too. Particularly stressful can be the loss of wages from missing work during your physical recovery.
Losing even a portion of your income can easily throw off your household budget. You may not be able to cover your bills and the costs of your basic needs. Because losing income can be so disruptive to a household’s finances, it is highly important that you consult with an experienced car accident attorney who knows how to help you obtain full compensation for losses caused by the negligence of another person.Injuries That Commonly Prevent Work
A surprising number of car accident injuries can prevent you from returning to work right away. Some injuries require physical and mental rest in order to heal, while others cause impairments that prevent you from properly performing the duties of your job. Some examples of car accident injuries that can result in missed work include the following:
- Back injuries
- Neck injuries
- Moderate or severe traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Spinal cord injury
- Broken bones or compound fractures
Whether you are forced to miss out on work for one week or months, you have the right to recover any income you lost from the party that was responsible for causing your car accident. Our attorneys always know to calculate and prove the lost wages that you may be entitled to recover. We use pay statements, time cards, and other evidence to prove the amount you lost.
In addition, if you still cannot work at the time of your claim—or if you will never be able to return to your job—we can also seek compensation for any future earnings you will lose because of disabilities or impairments caused by your injuries.Learn More about how Our Phoenix Car Accident Attorneys Can Help You
