Lost wages refer to those wages that you cannot earn because of your injury. In addition to lost wages, you may experience a loss of earning capacity related to your automobile accident. If, for example, you experience a long-term disability related to the accident and cannot make as much money as you did prior to the accident, you have sustained a loss in potential income. In addition to lost earning capacity, you may experience a loss in opportunities related to the injury. A skilled attorney can help to evaluate whether you may have sustained a loss in earning capacity related to your automobile accident. Call the Miller Law Firm, P.A. today at (864) 527-0413.
