Atlanta Car Wreck Attorney – Can I Get Paid Lost Wages For My Wreck?

Our video topic for today is if I was injured in a Savannah car wreck and I lost wages and was taken out of work, will I be entitled to those lost wages; and the answer is yes.

You’re entitled to lost wages; however I would say it is very important that you have a doctor’s medical excuse that says you cannot do the work that you were typically doing.  If you take yourself out of work and do not have a medical excuse to be out of work then you’re going to have a hard time with the insurance company, they’re gonna fight you and they’re gonna say you just took a vacation and you’re trying to get paid for it.  So it’s very important that medically you’re not able to work your job and so you want to be real careful.

The longer the time away from work the more the insurance company’s gonna focus on what were your job duties at work and why could you not do them as a result of the Savannah motor vehicle collision.  So it tends to be tied to the injuries that you have sustained in the car wreck.

We hope that you found this information helpful and we hope that you will come check out our other videos and call us if you have any questions.  Thank you.

  • Awesome Lawyer and very helpful!

  • Mr. Wilson is truly a very good person who cares about people. I understand he selected this career but I do know he makes many sacrifices to help he’s clients. I am very grateful to have had him as my attorney and if I ever have to use one again (hopefully not) it will be Mr. Wilson.

  • He worked with me. He told me everything. He called me. He gave me all the information.

  • He will be my family lawyer from now until the end because I can trust him.

  • He's just a great guy.

  • He always calls you right back and even if it's on the weekend - he's going to call you back.
