You ask an important question because the consequences of not going back to work can have a devastating impact on your life. How will you stay in your home and put food on your table if you are unable to earn an income? Could this attack ruin your life and endanger your family’s standard of living?
It May Not Have To
If you do nothing to protect your possible recovery and you are unable to earn an income, then the worst-case scenario that keeps you up at night could come true.
However, you may have options available to you if you were attacked on someone else’s property and the property owner did not have reasonable security measures in place at the time of your attack.
For example, you could protect your possible recovery by filing a negligent security claim. This could help you:
- Recover for lost income that you are unable to earn due to your injuries. Lost income may include compensation for past, current and future wages, bonuses, benefits, and income that you earn from being self-employed.
- Afford to train for a new type of job that you can do even with your injuries.
- Get the medical care that you need to recover from your injuries so that you can return to work.
You will need evidence of your injuries and your lost income in order to recover damages. This may include your medical records, pay stubs, tax returns, other evidence of past income, and expert witness testimony to establish the value of reasonably anticipated lost future income.
In order to recover for these damages, you are likely going to have to file a negligent security claim. For more information about how to do that, please read a FREE copy of our report, Negligent Security: What You Need to Know About It, and please start a live chat with us today.
