Recovering Lost Wages
Recovering Lost Wages in New Hampshire
If you have suffered a serious injury in an accident in New Hampshire, worrying about how you will pay for your medical bills is to be expected. But have you considered how much income you will lose if your injury prevents you from returning to work. Recovering your lost wages is an important aspect in every personal injury case.
New Hampshire law allows an injured person to recover full, fair and adequate compensation for their damages. One element of personal injury damages include the value of lost wages to date, or wages that would have been earned but for the accident and injury.
Recovering lost wages requires an injured person to document that they were unable to work as a result of the injuries they sustained, and document the amount of compensation they would have earned but for the accident and resulting injuries. A lost wage claim may include not only regular pay but also overtime pay, bonuses, differentials, raises and even lost opportunities for personal promotions or commissions. If the injuries sustained in a New Hampshire vehicle collision are severe and permanently disabling, an injured person may also seek to recover lost earning capacity and lost future wages. Calculating these losses can be difficult and often require the assistance of an expert to provide an opinion on the injured person's loss of earning capacity.
