If you’ve had a work injury that affects your ability to work, this can be a very stressful time for you and your family. We explain some options below for managing this difficult time.
I haven’t been able to work since my accident. What are my options?
If you’re in a situation where you are not getting your paycheck or you’re getting less than you usually would, you may be able to make a claim for your lost wages. First, you need to prove that the lost wages are related to your accident.
Ways to prove your lost wages are due to your accident:
- Tax returns
- Getting a letter from your employer
- Getting a letter from the people you usually do work for
If you are somebody who is self-employed or works for different companies, this is something that can get complicated and this is why you are probably better off speaking to an attorney who can help you get the evidence you need to prove your case.
