By Andrew S. Prince, Esq., Motorcycle Attorney
Soon after a person with motorcycle injuries looking to hire a personal injury lawyer contacts me and starts asking their questions, I am usually asked, “Will my lost wages be compensated?” I understand how devastating it can be to your finances if you are laid up in the hospital, or at home, after your motorcycle accident. This can be a game changer if you have a physical job and you have just been told that you must remain non-weight bearing for eight to twelve weeks or longer!
Often one of the most devastating consequences of being involved in a motorcycle accident is losing the ability to earn a before the accident, either temporarily or permanently. Fortunately, when you hire a motorcycle attorney like me you are in great hands. A harsh fact, adding insult to injury, is that a New Jersey motorcycle accident attorneys cannot force insurance carriers to pay any part of your lost wages from a motorcycle accident until they decide to resolve your entire motorcycle accident claim, or until we force the issue in court.
Do not hesitate to contact me, Andrew S. Prince, Esq., if you were involved in an accident through no fault of your own. You are never charged for a consultation in New Jersey until we win your case. Call 1-800-TEAM-LAW (832-6529).
This is never an ideal situation, but when forced with the possible loss of their home, victims often feel compelled to get back to work, some times before they are 100%. My advice, as a motorcycle accident lawyer, is that if you need to get back to work, and are able to, you should not put your motorcycle accident case ahead of earning a paycheck to handle bills.
We will ultimately recover lost wages from your New Jersey motorcycle accident. However most insurance companies only pay lost wage compensation as part of an overall motorcycle accident settlement in New Jersey, including not only lost wages but also medical bills and any pain and suffering compensation.
If you cannot return to your former employment because of your injuries and are forced to take a lower paying job, we will make a claim for “loss of earning capacity.” My job, as your motorcycle personal injury lawyer, may include hiring a vocational expert and economist. We are always prepared to hire the brightest experts to ensure that our clients receive every dollar they are entitled to after their accident.
If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, please feel free to call me. You could also email me. All of my contact information is listed below if you need me. There is never a charge for a legal consultation.
