How to Collect Lost Wages After An Accident

If you have been involved in an accident that rendered you unable to work, you may be wondering if you can recovery some of the money that you missed out on from being unable to work. The answer to that question is a resounding “YES!” – especially if you hire a personal injury attorney from Altman & Altman LLP, which has been helping clients from Cambridge, the Greater Boston Area and throughout Massachusetts recovery lost wages for over five decades.

Being involved in an accident that causes a serious injury can be an incredibly stressful and challenging thing to experience. Not only do you have to be concerned with recovering from your injury, you will likely be unable to continue working your regular job, or will at least be unable to work in the same capacity or at the same rate, meaning you will make less money and become financially burdened as a result – causing you to stress over potentially missing bills or being unable to provide for loved ones.

We Will Find the Legal Avenue That is Right for you

In the event that you have no short-term disability or other coverage for your lost wages, these wages may be payable under the Personal Injury Protection [“PIP”] portion of your motor vehicle insurance. You have coverage up to $8,000 under this portion of the policy, and this money may be applied to medical bills and/or lost wages. At Altman & Altman, we will fight on your behalf to ensure that your lost wages are paid under the PIP, so you may receive some immediate money when you are injured, regardless of the underlying facts of the case.

The need for a quick infusion of money is sometimes the first question that a new client will ask us – and we understand the emphasis and the timeliness of immediately collecting lost wages for our clients. When you're in an accident, it doesn't stop the bills, mortgage and rent obligations from coming. Our team of attorneys know how to deal with insurance in the most efficient manner and will expedite the procuring of your lost wage payments. We have been working with many of the insurance companies for over 50 years and have been successfully collecting lost wage payments for our clients during that time.

If Negligence or Wrongdoing Contributed to Your Injury, you can Recover Lost Wages

If there was another underlying cause to your injury, such as a negligent driver who was operating while drunk that caused an accident, or a faulty product caused you to become harmed, or insufficient security allowed you to be victimized by an assaulter, or you suffered from medical malpractice, or you took medication that turned out to be unsafe for human consumption and were not wared of the risks – among hundreds of other potential causes involving wrongdoing or negligence – you are entitled to fight for financial compensation in these instances as well.
