You May Be Entitled To Lost Wages During Your Recovery
Why should you be penalized further for someone else’s negligence? If you were the victim of a car accident, work accident, bike accident, water sport accident or injury on someone else’s property, there may be several possible insurance policies that we can access to cover lost wages while your legal case is pending.
Coverage such as Med-Pay, uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) or personal injury protection (PIP) on your auto insurance policy will be helpful in a car accident, while homeowners’, renters’, health, workers’ compensation and general liability policy coverage may be helpful in other situations.
Speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer in Florida panhandle. Never try to work through an insurance provider on your own.
We maximize your recovery while the insurer will work to minimize it, despite what a representative might say to the contrary.
How Will Your Lost Wages Or Income Be Calculated?
We take a comprehensive look at your earning power. We go beyond your recent tax returns and paychecks. Calculating your current earnings and take-home pay will work for the short term while your case is pending, but what about your earning potential in the future?
At Brannon & Brannon, we look closely at all of the following:
- Your work history — How has your earning increased over the years? Are you on track for a promotion?
- Your level of education — In many cases, people with college degrees and certificates have greater potential earning power, and their wages will increase at a quicker rate.
- Your physical condition and age — Your future earning capacity is also based on how much time you reasonably have left in the workforce and the expected income of a worker in your position looking into the future, accounting for inflation, promotions and raises.
