Missing Work Due to Your Injuries
Many car accident victims must miss work, whether it is for one day, one year or longer. Injuries can prevent you from performing your necessary job duties and can even make it impossible to sit in an office chair or behind the wheel of a truck for extended periods of time. Some injuries that can disrupt your work include:
- Neck and back injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Brain injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
- Internal injuries
Some accident victims have to take time off to attend doctor’s appointments, physical therapy sessions, and other medical treatments. Others must miss work because their injuries restrict their physical or cognitive abilities, which affects their ability to do their jobs.
Whether you lose income for a short or long period of time, it can certainly impact your household budget. Many people depend on their full paychecks to pay their bills and cover basic needs, and even a slight reduction can result in unpaid bills or unexpected credit card debt. If someone else acted negligently and caused your accident, you deserve to recover for every dime you lost due to missing work.
Future Lost Earning Power
Some accident victims suffer injuries that cause long-lasting impairments. Such impairments can make it impossible to return to your prior job, and you may have to take a lower paying job or even rely on disability benefits if you cannot work at all. This reduction in income can continually affect you and your family for years to come. In this situation, you may have the right to seek compensation for your future lost earnings. The amount will depend on the number of working years you have ahead of you and the difference in your pre-injury and post-injury income levels.
