Can I Sue for Lost Future Earnings After a Car Accident?

There is nothing worse than sustaining a serious injury in a car accident. These injuries can impact a person’s life immediately, but can continue to impact the individual for months or years down the road. Please continue reading and contact a dedicated Bronx car accident lawyer to learn more about suing for lost future earnings and how our legal team can help you get the compensation you deserve and need to heal. Here are some of the questions you may have:

How do I know if I can get compensation for lost future earnings?

To win compensation in any personal injury claim, we will have to prove that you were hurt as a direct result of another party’s negligence. If you were injured in a car accident due to no fault of your own and you are unable to return to work because of your injury, there’s a strong chance you will receive compensation for lost past and future wages. To get compensated for future wages, however, we’ll need to demonstrate that your injury will keep you out of work for the foreseeable future, or that your injury prevents you permanently from returning to your position, and you had to take a lower-paying position as a result.

What else can I get compensation for?

As long as you are successful in your personal injury claim, you may receive compensation for a wide range of additional damages, including:

  • Emotional trauma
  • Pain and suffering
  • The loss of enjoyment of life
  • Lower standard of living
  • The cost of medical care
  • Loss of consortium
  • Scarring and disfigurement

If you have any further questions about the personal injury claims process or you’re looking to bring a personal injury claim, please don’t hesitate to pick up the phone and give us a call.
