Loss of Wages From Construction Accidents
Depending on the type and extent of one’s injury, one may have to take time off from work to seek medical treatment and recover following a construction accident, which can result in weeks or even months of lost wages. Unfortunately, this loss of income can impact more than just the accident victim—one’s family and dependents may suffer as well. Overall, this can make it much more difficult to make ends meet every month.
The attorneys of Hach & Rose, LLP, know that construction accidents can be devastating on multiple levels, including on a family’s financial stability. We can help construction accident victims in New York seek the full compensation they are owed for their injuries, including remuneration for lost wages.
Damages from Lost Wages
Losing one’s wages can seriously disrupt a person’s financial stability, potentially placing him or her in a precarious situation. Some of the damages that can result from this loss of income include:
- Inability to pay medical bills
- Inability to cover recurring costs like mortgage and car payments
- Inability to provide for one’s family
However, if a negligent construction company or work site employee is responsible for the accident that injured you, you may be entitled to seek compensation including remuneration for your loss in wages.
