If you are unable to work due to injuries you suffered in an accident, you may be entitled to recover your lost wages. Many insurance companies will consider your lost wages in evaluating your case, however, certain documentation must be provided. In order to recover your lost wages, a medical doctor must provide written documentation recommending that you remain out of work for a particular period of time. Additionally, a statement from your employer is required, and it must identify how much you were earning, and how much time you missed from work. Since there is no guarantee that an insurance company will consider your lost wages, we recommend that if you are able to work, that you do so, rather than remain out of work for a prolonged period of time.
