Get to know the power of Perkins!

Connecticut Wage Recovery Lawyers

According to the National Center for Health Statistics, there are more than 31 million injuries each year in the United States that require some form of physician’s attention. Even worse, nearly two million Americans sustain injuries that necessitate hospitalization of some sort. When an accident of some kind causes injuries to a victim, a number of issues may keep them from attending work.

Dependent upon the severity of the damages, some accident victims may be out of work for days, weeks, months, and in some cases, permanently. Even if an accident causes the injured party to simply miss an important meeting to visit the doctor or attend rehabilitation sessions, lost wages suffered may indicate a potential lawsuit.

Filing a claim for lost wages against a negligent party is a complex procedure. In fact, calculating the cost of lost wages is incredibly challenging. As a result, accident victims are encouraged to document as much as possible during these difficult times. When filing a lawsuit, it is imperative to speak with one of Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers.

If you or a loved one has been forced to miss work following an accident, one of our Hartford personal injury lawyers are prepared to guide you through each and every step in the legal process.

Lost Wages Basics

Understanding the intricacies of lost wages claims can be difficult to an accident victim with limited legal knowledge. While calculating the specific monetary value of lost wages is not necessarily a task for an injured party, having a grasp on the basics will help victims to understand the entirety of the legal process.

Beyond collecting and maintaining the proper documentation to prove lost wages, accident victims in Hartford, Bridgeport, or New Haven should ask themselves the following questions:

  • Did the accident cause an injury which led to a necessary change of employment?
  • If you were able to get back to work after the accident, was it only on a part time?

If either of the above questions is answered with a “yes,” then important information is available for your case. Be sure to request specific documentation detailing these situations in order to establish proof in your claim.

The more prepared the victim’s accident documents are the more value can be placed upon specific examples of lost wages. If an injury has left you unable to work, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact our Connecticut personal injury lawyers at your earliest convenience.

How to Document Lost Wages

Upwards of 5.5 million car accidents occur in the United States annually. These growing numbers continue to breed more and more personal injury lawsuits in Connecticut each and every year. With this in mind, motorists must understand the dangers present while on the roads.

If an accident does occur, knowing what to document can make an enormous monetary difference in your case. Proper documentation places specific value on lost wages that will directly influence the amount of damages you will be able to recover.

In order to receive as much compensation as you are entitled to, make every effort to document the following:

  • All doctor’s notes
  • Employer pay stubs
  • Employer notes
  • Applicable tax returns
  • Proof of disability income
  • Past and present medical records
  • Missed business meetings (calendar as documentation)
  • Missed work opportunities

While some of the above documents may be more difficult than others to obtain, accident victims must paint a clear picture for the courts. Establishing the value of lost wages is challenging, however, adequate documentation can greatly assist legal counsel in their pursuit of compensation for the accident victim in Connecticut.

Calculating Lost Wages

Depending on the complexity of the situation, calculating lost wages will vary. In a basic case, the missed days of work due to injury will be calculated and lost wages will be clear-cut. However, more complex cases will require an elevated level of investigation to determine the lost wages present.

When calculating lost wages and the due compensation, accident victims’ employers must provide:

  • Hours per week
  • Job title
  • Job responsibilities and duties
  • Gross income (monthly)
  • The amount of time missed because of the accident

Providing this information to legal counsel will help to shape your case. In addition, future earnings and income will need to be determined. In this situation, hiring a personal injury lawyer is crucial to collecting resources and experts to establish financial factors that would validate a future loss.
