If you missed work because of your Texas car crash then you can file a lawsuit that includes being reimbursed for lost wages. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you determine just how much money you have lost due to the crash. In Texas, you can sue for lost wages that are related to:
- Time off work for your initial hospitalization
- Time you missed due to ongoing physical therapy or medical treatments
- Loss of earning capacity
Of these three, loss of earning capacity can be the most difficult to determine. There are many factors that go into figuring out how the injuries sustained in your crash will affect your earning potential. For example, let's say that you work as a welder. If you injure your hand, and this injury will keep you from working in the trade you are trained in, then you have a good chance of getting compensation for loss of earning capacity. However, if you work as a writer, and your leg is injured, there is little chance that you can successfully sue for loss of earning capacity.
If you have been injured in a crash, there is every chance that you can successfully sue for some form of loss of income.
