Can I get financial help with everyday bills after being injured in a rear-end collision?
I now have reduced wages. Is their any financial assistance available?
Your personal injury claim should include compensation for lost wages.
When you complete your medical treatment for the injuries you sustained in the auto accident, and are released by the doctor, obtain the medical report(s) and medical bills to document the nature and extent of your injury. Include the total amount of lost wages with the claim you file with the insurance company. Ask your employer to provide records documenting your lost wages. In addition, keep records of other out of pocket expenses you have incurred caused by your auto accident and include those items when you file your personal injury claim with the insurance company.
In addition to reimbursement for wage loss and other out of pocket expenses, your claim should also include compensation for pain and suffering which is determined by the nature and extent of your injuries as documented in the medical report(s). Compensation for pain and suffering is an additional amount beyond your medical bills.
