The devastating impact of personal injury accidents often extends beyond the physical injuries and mounting medical bills. They are more than just an inconvenience.
Many of our clients miss time from work and temporarily lose the ability to provide for their families. Recoupment of lost wages is another component of damages that Burger Law will seek when handling your case.
Genavieve recently obtained a $50,000 policy limits settlement for our client who sustained injuries when struck by a car as a pedestrian.
Our client was exiting Ameristar Casino as the at-fault driver was attempting to enter the parking area. The at-fault driver was denied access through the parking lot gate and reversed his vehicle, striking our client.
Our client suffered from neck, back and shoulder strains, and incurred $15,000 in medical charges. In addition to his medical expenses, he also lost wages as a result of the at-fault driver’s negligence.
He was working as a photographer who does portrait photography, weddings, and photo shoots of homes for a real estate company. Because of his severe pain, he had to cancel several appointments and shoots.
He lost clients, business relationships, and future business opportunities as well.
We were able to produce voicemails and text messages proving our client’s future missed job opportunities, which added significant value to his claim.
If you are ever in an accident and miss work, it is important to keep any evidence you have to corroborate your losses, even if they are casual text messages, calendar entries, email reservations, or voicemails.
Luckily our client is on the mend, and the $50,000 settlement he received will go a long way in making up for the work that he lost.
