Lost Wages

The elements of a personal injury case go far beyond the simple facts of what happened during the injury-causing accident. An individual taking out a personal injury lawsuit can seek damages in a number of different areas. Usually the most obvious damages are medical costs. Most people are also familiar with damages for emotional pain and suffering. But another way that an injured person can be harmed is if the injury keeps them from being able to perform work and thus receive a paycheck. This is referred to as lost wages.

Proving Lost Damages

Saying that you were not able to work because of your injury and stating a random number for which you should be compensated will not work in any personal injury lawsuit. As soon as you discover that you are unable to attend work because of your injury, you should take the following steps:

  • Go to the doctor: have the doctor write a detailed note describing your injury and your inability to work.
  • Talk to your employer: have your employer document that you are unable to work.
  • Obtain all relevant documentation: past paychecks are additionally important in proving how much you have lost monetarily.
