Contact one of the Los Angeles car accident lawyers at Ellis Law today and schedule a free consultation. With our experienced legal team at your side, you can fight for the compensation you need to get back on your feet.

Can I sue for lost wages?

You can absolutely sue for lost wages and lost earning potential. A personal injury lawyer will help you seek compensation to make up for your physical and financial suffering. If your injuries were caused by another driver’s negligence or irresponsibility, they and their insurance company should rightfully pay out damages. Often, the insurance company will offer a small settlement that covers emergency medical bills and car repairs, in hopes that you’ll agree to take it and forfeit your right to further compensation. It’s important that you have a lawyer at your side to analyze any offer from the other driver’s insurance and make sure that it’s fair. Your attorney will seek compensation that covers emergency and ongoing medical needs and makes up for lost paychecks as well as lost earnings potential. This is money intended to keep you afloat while you recuperate, and help you put your life back together.
