Car accidents, 18 wheeler collisions, slip and falls, dog bites, and medical malpractice can all lead to painful injuries. As a result, you will likely have to pay for expensive medical bills.
But an injury can also cause you to lose wages. Certain injuries are so severe that the victims are unable to return to their everyday job for weeks, month, or sometimes never.
Below are types of injuries that may cause a loss of wages:
- Neck and spinal injuries. Whiplash is the most common neck injury. Depending on the severity of this condition, you may be unable to work until you are fully healed. A serious trauma to the neck or back can lead to paralysis. Neck and spinal injuries often occur in auto accidents, but may also occur in slip and fall accidents. Contract a knowledgeable lawyer if you or someone you love suffers a neck or spinal injury.
- Head and brain injuries. Head and brain injuries may prevent a person from attending work for an extended period, resulting in an excessive loss of wages. Traumatic brain injury is commonly caused by slip and fall accidents and can result in lifelong complications.
After an injury, a doctor can help you recover and get back on your feet. However, while your body is healing, you are not collecting a paycheck. An attorney can help you file a lawsuit to obtain just compensation. As a result, you can receive reimbursement to cover medical costs, pain and suffering, and even lost wages.
In order to accomplish this, you must contact an experienced lawyer. He or she can then review your case, gather evidence, and hire expert witnesses to testify on your behalf.
