Have you been the victim of an accident in Jackson, MS? When you’re injured in an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, one of the many types of compensation you can claim is compensation for lost wages.
Even minor injuries can prevent you from returning to work or performing all of your necessary tasks. As a result, you might lose at least part of your income. But you can get it back!
Types of Lost Wages You Can Claim:
There are two types of lost wages you can claim in your personal injury case:
According to HG.org, past lost income is relatively easy to prove. You will typically need your employer to confirm your absences from work due to the accident and the earnings that you would have received if you had been able to come to work.
HG.org goes on to say that future lost earnings are the most complicated to claim because your future ability to earn wages is usually quite ambiguous. Most personal injury accident victims will experience some form of recovery over time and will be able to return to work either full-time or part-time. But in many cases, there is a “loss of earning capacity.” Because this aspect of the law is very nuanced, an experienced personal injury lawyer is essential.
