Being struck as a motorcycle rider, a bicyclist, a pedestrian, a passenger or driver in a vehicle raises plenty of questions about your future. Getting medical attention should be your first priority to determine the full scope of your injuries and decide your next steps with regard to treatment. However, attending to all of this treatment and dealing with the pain you suffered in the accident doesn’t stop there.
You may not be able to return to work immediately, causing you to question whether or not you are eligible for compensation. It does not matter if you were self-employed, worked as a casual employee or employed part time or full time at the time of the crash. Your legal claim filed with the help of the San Francisco personal injury attorney can help you recover for missed earning opportunities and wages lost from the job you held at the time of the accident.
Some of the other specific types of benefits you may be able to bring up on your California personal injury claim include arguments for missed overtime opportunities, lost wages for missed days at work, non-monetary perks you missed while off of work, money you would have made from missed special projects, job interviews or business meetings, bonuses, sick days and vacation days that you use to avoid taking unpaid time off of work and more.
You must be able to show that you missed work because of your injuries as a result of the accident and you must be able to explain how much money you would have made if you had not been injured.
Gathering this evidence with the support of a San Francisco personal injury lawyer can help put you on the path to recovery.
