Career-threatening injuries suffered in a car accident
Getting in a car accident is bad enough, but suffering an injury that threatens your livelihood is much worse. In addition to courts determining how much income you’ve lost up until trial, they also will consider future wages you won’t receive as a result of being injured. Loss of future wages is an important part of personal injury law and will sometimes eclipse the dollar amount of all other types of damages. The calculation of these lost wages is usually complex and will require thorough paperwork to prove. Of course before getting any damages, you must first prove that negligence of the other driver caused your injury.
