Can I be reimbursed for lost wages after a car accident?
Yes, you can be reimbursed for lost wages. This can include wages that came because of work missed due to injury, as well as work you missed when attending doctors’ appointments.
Additionally, other missed opportunities can be factored in. For instance, if you missed out on a promotion because of your missed work, that loss can also be claimed.
How do I prove future lost earnings in a personal injury case?
