A serious injury can derail a person’s life for years to come. These injuries can cause medical bills to pile up and prevent a person from returning to work.

Here are some of the questions you may have:
What accidents can cause a loss of future wages?
A wide range of accidents can critically injure a person and prevent them from returning to work. Just some of the most common debilitating accidents are as follows:
- Motorcycle accidents
- Car accidents
- Workplace accidents
- Defective product accidents
- Slip & fall accidents
How do I know if I can sue for a loss of future wages?
If you’re injured in an accident of any kind and are looking to recover financial compensation, you will first have to prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence. Next, if you’re looking to recover compensation for lost wages, you will have to prove that your injury has prevented you from returning to work, and will continue to prevent you from returning to work either for the foreseeable future or indefinitely. Note that you can also sue for a diminished earning capacity in cases where you can still return to work, albeit in a lower-paying position.
In a successful personal injury claim, you may also receive compensation for the following, among other things:
- Medical bills
- Lower quality of life
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma
- Disfigurement or scarring
- Loss of consortium
