Q: Can I be compensated for Loss of wages ?
I got into an accident while working my driving job no fault was assigned at the time off accident I had slight injuries and was little damage to little vehicle a couple of days later my job fired me because they said the insurance was going to raise their rates
A: If you are unable to work as a result of the injuries you sustained in the accident, you usually have a claim for loss wages against the other driver and their insurer. However, if you are not working due to being fired then you will likely not have a claim for lost wages. You normally will require medical proof that you are not able to work due to your injuries and proof from your employer that you missed work due to your injuries.
