Can I be Compenstated for Lost Wages After an Accident? | Morgantown WV Car Accident Attorney

Just because you are not working does not stop the bills from piling up. A primary concern after any accident is how to pay living expenses and medical bills when you are off work recovering from the accident.

West Virginia Car Accident Attorney Explains:

Today's question is, "Can I collect my lost wages caused from an injury from an automobile collision?" And the answer to that question is "Yes, you may be compensated for the money you have lost through taking time off to recover from your injury."

West Virginia law provides that you are entitled to collect your lost wages caused by an injury that you received from an automobile collision, but you need the proper documentation of proof in order to do so. In order to obtain this, you will need support from your medical doctor.

Your medical records should indicate the type of the injury that would necessitate your being off work In addition to that, your employer oftentimes will have to substantiate that your absentee time was caused by your injuries.

So it's very important that all of your injuries be documented by your medical records and your medical providers. And if those things are met, then you should be able to collect the fair amount of your lost wages caused by your injury.
