Welcome back to the second post in our series on car accident compensation claims. We’re glad you’ve returned to learn more about what goes into creating your claim.

Let’s continue with more about what goes into putting together your car accident injury claims.

Your Lost Wages

Not being able to go to work is a serious hardship for most people. Perhaps your family is depending on you and the money you bring into the home. It’s possible that without your income they could run into serious problems such as not being able to pay for food or even regular household bills. Some families have emergency funds, but that’s just not true for everyone. While you might be able to get temporary disability to provide you with some amount of money while you’re not able to work, it won’t make up for your entire paycheck. Your car accident lawyer will include your lost wages in your car accident claim.

Your Future Lost Wages

When you file your car accident claim, you probably won’t necessarily know just when you’ll be going back to work. You might have extensive injuries that will require months of therapy before you’re able to walk, or you might have other significant problems that prevent you from doing your job. Your attorney will talk with the appropriate people to get an estimate about how much money you’re losing in wages for the future, and that will be included in your claim too.
