What is Lost Wages?

17309474015_fc84285a7b_bSome of the legal terms encountered in personal injury cases can be confusing, unusual or misunderstood. In today's post, we discuss lost wages.

When you miss work because of a truck accident, fall, malpractice, or any other type of injury, you likely don't get paid.  When you don't get paid, the law defines that as "lost wage" and you are entitled to reimbursement for that.

But there is much more to lost wages.  For example, some employers will pay you but count your time off as "sick days."  Taking a sick day because of a personal injury is lost wages and you are entitled to get paid back for that.  If you missed work but had to take spend "vacation days," you can claim those as lost wages and get reimbursed for those.

And there is still more.  If you have an employer who contributes to a 401(k) or retirement plan for you based on your wages and your time off reduces that claim, you can claim that as lost wages.  If you are in sales and your sales dropped because of your injuries, that is lost wages.  If some or part of your income is based on commission and your commissions are lower because of your injuries, that is lost wages.
