What if I've been out of work due to my Florida car accident? Who will pay me my lost wages or salary?

In the state of Florida, if you've been involved in a car accident and you've missed time from work, you do have the right to recover lost wages, salary or the future loss of earning capacity, which would be lost wages moving into the future. The first place that we look to recover lost wages is actually your own insurance company under the no fault insurance no fault statute, also referred to as PIP or personal injury protection.

Basically the way that works is it covers up to $10,000 of lost wages at a rate of 60% of your actual wages. If that's tapped out and that's run out then we look to bodily injury coverage next as well as uninsured motorist coverage, which is again through your own insurance company. There are plenty of sources for you to recover the wages that you've lost as a result of the accident.

“The attorneys at Donaldson & Weston helped me get an amazing result on my case. Obviously I’ve been through a lot physically but I feel better now and the money really helped my family. When I was riding my bicycle I was hit by a truck that wasn't paying attention. I am not the suing type, but I would definitely hire this firm again.”

The lawyers at the firm were so honest and definitely pointed me in the right direction. The staff was professional. I think it’s great that only attorneys work on my case, it definitely made me feel comfortable”

“After my accident happened I waited to hear back from the insurance company for about 6 months. I just felt like they kept jerking me around. They even told me not to hire an attorney because it would mean less money in my pocket. I couldn't wait any longer because my bills were out of hand. I hired this firm and they were solid. I got a great result without having to go to court.”
