Losing wages after a car accident

Many of the damages that people in Illinois think about after an accident have to do with bills: the cost of medical treatment, the cost of repairing a car, the cost of rehabilitation. However, there is another important thing to keep in mind, and that is the fact that you may have lost money directly due to lost wages. Though not a bill, this is still a financial loss, and you need to know what you can do, legally speaking.

The loss could start the moment the accident happens. If you're on your way to your job and you're paid by the hour, you're going to be late. You're probably going to miss a few hours while you talk to the police, have the car towed, and find another ride. Sorting things out takes time, and every moment you spent doing that is one you don't spend working.

If you're hurt, the losses could start piling up. A week in the hospital takes away a week's wages. Even after you're released, you may not be fit to go back to work. You may need to spend a few weeks in rehab. At the end of everything, when your life finally returns to normal, you may find that you've lost hundreds or even thousands of dollars that you expected to be paid, making it hard to make mortgage payments and put food on the table.
