CAN I GET PAID FOR TIME MISSED AT WORK?
Car accidents are always inconvenient, and they’re always the fastest way to send a person into a state of panic and confusion. You think you know how you’ll react when something like this happens, but you have no real idea until someone hits you and leaves you injured, with a car in need of repair, and without any idea what to do or where to get started. There are several things that could happen in an accident. Hopefully, it’s a minor accident and you’re just bruised and sore following the accident. Your car can be repaired quickly, everyone has insurance, and nothing complicated occurs. If your car is totally destroyed, the cost of a new car, whether you’re getting a new car lease through a San Francisco car lease company like Zooomr, or whether you’re buying a new car – is covered under the final verdict and/or settlement.
That’s not what happens in every accident, though. In many accidents, there are more serious injuries. Victims are transported to the hospital with serious injuries, and recovery isn’t something that occurs quickly. In fact, in many instances, recovery doesn’t happen right away at all. Victims are injured badly enough they spend time in the hospital and/or in a rehabilitation center. It all depends on the severity of the injury, whether surgery is required, and what kind of recovery time is recommended by a doctor. If you’re in a long-term recovery center, you’re out of work. When you’re out of work, your job is not required to pay you for the time you missed. They are required to hold on to your job for you, but they are not required to compensate you for time off for medical purposes.
Compensation for Time Missed at Work
The problem with missing work to recover is financial. You’re not getting paid, so you’re losing money. Many people don’t have the funds on hand to pay for their expenses if they’re not getting paid. Medical bills are piling up do to recovery, surgeries, and other expenses caused by your accident, your bills are due, and you have no income. It’s a devastating financial situation, and it happens all the time. When this occurs, it’s time to seek legal representation so you can file a lawsuit for damages.
You’re missing work, which means you should sue the at-fault driver and their insurance company for a larger settlement to make up for all the money you’re missing at work. You have a few options depending on where you live and where the accident took place. If your insurance policy offers payment for time missed because of an accident, you’ll receive a portion of your missed wages.
If you live in a no-fault state or that’s where the accident occurred, you’re going to find you could be entitled to a specific percentage of the wages you lost. This depends on where you live and where the accident occurred. This is probably not enough to cover the amount of money you’re losing by not working, but it’s income when you’re otherwise without.
Filing a lawsuit is your best option for a larger settlement. This is a good option when you’re injured badly enough you’ll face medical issues the rest of your life. This kind of lawsuit means the at-fault driver’s insurance company will offer you a lot more money to handle the medical bills you’re forced to live with for the rest of your life, they’ll offer damages for missed work and for losing your job if you cannot return to work.
Calling a personal injury attorney following any accident in which you’re injured is your best option. It’s how you find out what you can do, what you’re entitled to, and what options you have. It’s confusing being involved in a car accident, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find a resolution with the help of a personal injury attorney.
