Can I Get Lost Wages in a New Mexico Motor Vehicle Crash?

Sometimes Lost Wages Can be the Largest Part of Your Recovery in a New Mexico Motor Vehicle Accident, And All Victims Should Know Their Rights to Compensation

When most people think of a motor vehicle crash, they think of the pain and suffering and the hospital bills which they will ensure and may obtain compensation for in a lawsuit.  While this is certainly true and is the most commonly sought damages, a victim can also obtain his or her lost wages from work.  In fact, a lost wage claim can actually be even greater than a pain and suffering claim if the victim suffered severe injuries keeping him or her out of work for a long period of time.

Here at the Caruso Law Offices, P.C., our experienced New Mexico motor vehicle accident attorneys know that victims need to be compensated for their lost wages.  Many families depend on these wages and when a family member supporting the household can no longer work, it can create a great burden on the rest of the family.  If you or a loved one have been injured and unable to work, call us today for a FREE consultation by dialing (505) 883-5000 to learn how we can protect your rights to compensation.

Lost Wage Claims Are Available to All Motorists Injured in New Mexico Accidents

Where a victim of a motor vehicle accident is seriously injured and out of work for several months, he or she may have an extended lost wage claim.  A lost wage claim is simply the lost wages that the victim would have earned if he or she had not been injured.  It is simply lost time from work.  The more seriously injured a victim is and the longer away from work, the greater the lost wages.

This is why victims of New Mexico trucking accidents have some of the largest lost wages claims.  Trucking crashes with large commercial vehicles such as big rigs, 18 wheelers, tankers, flatbeds, semis, tandem trailers, and other large trucks will cause devastating wrecks and catastrophic injuries.  This means a victim will be away from work longer, and will miss more salary.  This means a higher lost wage claim.

A Truck Driver’s Lost Wage Claims

Truckers who are also working in national companies like Schneider, Estes, FedEx, and other large trucking companies may also be injured in New Mexico.  Indeed, New Mexico has some of the busiest interstates in the country.  I-40, I-25, and I-10 are very busy and important hubs for trucking companies sending goods coast to coast.

Sometimes these truck drivers fall victim to serious traffic accidents due to the negligence of another truck driver or other drivers.  The Caruso Law Offices, P.C. has represented many such injured truck drivers, including those from Ontario and Upland, California, who are traveling through New Mexico.  Many times truck drivers, even if just incapacitated for several weeks or months, could have large lost wage claims.
