West Palm Beach, Florida car accident lawyer David Glatthorn can help you
In order to help you, attorney Glatthorn will need three things to prove loss of income after a Florida car crash. He can help you every step of the way. Here are three pieces of evidence that are generally needed to claim lost income:
1) A statement from your employer: The statement from your employer should include the amount of time you missed from work due to your injury and the amount you would have earned if you had you been working. Your employer should also note if you went back to work but are working fewer hours, or if you are working in a position that pays you less than before the accident.
2) A medical evaluation: The medical evaluation must be written by your doctor. It should include a report of your injuries, the details of any past or on-going treatment, and a discussion of your ability to work. The doctor should note for how long you were unable to work after the accident and when (if ever) you will be able to return to your previous employment.
3) A wage report: Your West Palm Beach auto accident attorney can help you use your past earnings to calculate a fair amount to report for lost wages. This may be challenging, if you have irregular income, work for tips, or are self-employed.
