Loss of Earnings – Compensation for Personal Injury Claims
In determining the fair value of your personal injury claim, your attorney should look to the full extent of lost earnings that you have experienced and will experience in the future. This can help you regain and maintain financial stability even if you missed work due to hospitalization or doctor visits, were unable to return to work for an extended period of time or are unable to work again. This is a key area of financial compensation that should be awarded in a personal injury settlement or jury verdict.
With extensive experience in this field and the resources to properly determine the worth of your claim based upon loss of earnings and other damages, a Gainesville personal injury attorney at Steven A. Bagen & Associates, P.A. can accurately assess and then prove the value of your claim. In addition to seeking compensation for lost wages, your lawyer will seek necessary compensation for medical expenses, emotional trauma and pain and suffering, as well as any other relevant economic or non-economic damages.
Recovering Lost Wages in a Gainesville Personal Injury Case
The goal of the compensation awarded in a personal injury claim is to aid the injured party in rebuilding his or her life to a similar situation as before the incident occurred. This is best achieved if any and all relevant losses and injuries are included, and a key one of these is lost earnings. Whether these are wages that have already been lost or are earnings that may be lost in the future because the victim cannot return to work in the same field or cannot return to work at all, this money will play an important role in helping the victim cover living expenses and more.
