Absolutely. You’re entitled to recovery of your lost wages if you’ve missed time from work because of your injuries suffered as a result of the accident. This is going to be true even when you’ve been compensated by your employer for that time off because after all, you’ve had to use work vacation days or sick days that would otherwise have been available to you had you not been in the car accident. In addition, if your working life has been shortened, if experts opine that you won’t be able to work as many years as you otherwise would’ve, you can recover for the future lost earning capacity.
