The nightmare scenario after any accident is that you will be injured so severely you won't be able to work and earn a living. A personal injury suit might be able to win you a settlement or verdict to pay for your medical expenses, but what about day-to-day life? How can you afford to live if you're unable to work?
Fortunately, our Atlanta accident lawyers can help. Under Georgia's personal injury statute, accident victims are able to pursue compensation for lost wages.
In other words, a successful case can replace much of the money you will lose in the future due to an inability to work.
The precise amount of money you will be able to pursue for lost wages will, of course, depend on the specific circumstances of your case. These determinations are made on the basis of a few factors, including:
- Your current wages
- Your future wage prospects
- The extent of your injuries and ability to find other work
And no accident lawyer can promise you a specific award or monetary settlement.
However, our accident lawyers have helped victims who were unable to work after their accidents. We recognize how important it is in these situations to vigorously pursue all avenues of compensation.
