In the aftermath of a sustaining an injury caused by another person’s negligence, victims can face tremendous expenses. Most people think of medical bills caused by the accident, and those can certainly be costly. If a victim cannot work, they will lose income until they recover. However, an injury victim can also experience temporary or permanent disabilities that keep them from earning at the same level they are accustomed to.
For example, if a mechanic sustains a serious shoulder injury and loses mobility permanently, they may no longer be able to make a living as a mechanic. Instead, they may be forced to take a job that brings in less money. If a teacher sustains brain damage in a car accident and is no longer able to practice their craft, then they will certainly incur a major lost earning capacity. In these cases, and many more, injury victims should not have to worry about their future income.
