How to I go about claiming lost wages after an accident
I was just involved in an accident in my husband’s car. I was not at fault, but I'm not on my husbands insurance therefore I was unable to get a rental car from the insurance company of the person who hit me. This happened Sunday and I was scheduled to start a new job Monday.
I'm new to the area and don't know anyone so I'm unable to find a way to work. Although I have not started my job yet, am I still able to claim money for lost wages?
Because I'm going to miss out on a weeks pay, at least. More than likely more than a week. Ive never been in a wreck before, how do I do this.
It is unlikely you can recover lost wages. You have a duty to mitigate your damages and you could find alternate transportation (public transportation).
