Can I Sue for Lost Income/Wages in a Car Accident Injury Claim?

Few things are worse than sustaining an injury at the hands of a negligent motorist. Unfortunately, this is something that happens every single day here in New York City. If you sustained an injury in a car accident and are unable to return to work, you’re most likely overwhelmed with medical bills piling up and having no way to pay them since you’re no longer collecting a paycheck. Please continue reading and reach out to a seasoned New York City personal injury lawyer from the Law Office of Richard M. Kenny to learn more about whether you can sue for lost income/wages after a car accident injury and how we can help you fight for the full and fair compensation to which you are entitled.

Am I allowed to sue for lost income/wages after a car accident injury in NYC?

To start, in short, the answer is yes, as long as you can prove that you were injured in a car accident due to another driver’s negligence and are unable to return to work as a direct result of your accident, you should be able to sue for lost past and future income.  Other things you may sue for in a personal injury claim can include pain and suffering, the loss of enjoyment of life, the cost of medical care, emotional trauma, and more.

What should I do to help prove my personal injury claim?

To increase the chances of winning your personal injury claim, you should do what you can to gather evidence at the scene of the accident, as well as report the accident to the police. Once you call the police, you should take pictures of any damage to your vehicle and the other driver’s vehicle. You should also get their insurance information and license plate number. If possible, you should ask anyone who witnessed the accident for their contact information, as witness testimony can prove to be extremely valuable when it comes to satisfying the burden of proof in personal injury claims. You should also keep all medical documentation and bills associated with your injury. Finally, you should retain the services of a seasoned car accident lawyer who can help you fight for the compensation you need. Our firm is here to help. Contact us today.
