Can I Get Lost Wages Paid After A Car Accident?
Many people after an automobile accident are unable to work. They may be dealing with a sore neck or back, or maybe they injured their shoulder and have serious pain. No matter what type of personal injuries were suffered, if one cannot work due to an accident, then he may collect lost wages. You can collect lost wages if even you were found to liable for causing the accident. This is called no-fault PIP coverage. Lost wages are paid through PIP insurance, and you can collect a total of $ 8000 in lost wages (assuming PIP is not used for medical bills). As long as your doctor says you cannot work due to the accident, and your employer confirms in writing that you missed time, then you can collect lost wages. These benefits are paid by the insurance company that insures the vehicle you were in at the time of the accident. If you were a pedestrian struck by a car, then the car that hit you will provide you with payment for lost wages. Massachusetts law allows you to collet 75% of the total lost wages you lost due to the car accident. These benefits are not subject to either Massachusetts or federal taxes. Before you can collect lost wages, you need to fill out and submit a PIP (Personal Injury Protection) application.
