Can You Sue for Loss of Income After a Car Accident?
Injuries resulting from a car accident can take weeks, months, or years to recover from. Depending on the nature of your job and the severity of your injuries, it may take some time before you return to work or perform at the same level you did before the accident. If the carelessness of another driver caused your accident, then you can file a lawsuit to recover damages for loss of income, medical expenses, property damage, and more.
Personal injury suits after a car accident in California typically consider income lost in the past and the future when determining the value of your claim.
