Automatic budget cuts have caused 650,000 people who hold civilian jobs with the Defense Department to have a day without pay. Many of those DOD civilians are our friends and neighbors and they work right here in Virginia Beach, Portsmouth and Norfolk, Virginia (VA). A day without pay is tough on many in our area. Although under different circumstances many of our injured clients have also known the uncertainty and fear that comes from not being able to work.
If you have never been injured in an accident then you probably don’t know just how long it can take for those responsible to make right and settle with the injured parties. It can take weeks, months, or in some cases years before the injured parties receive any money.
Lost wages are a critical component of a personal injury case because it is a monetary loss that can be documented and reasonably forecasted into the future. The amount of lost wages becomes vitally important when representing a client who suffered a life-threatening injury like a traumatic brain injury, paralysis, or loss of limb.
As Virginia personal injury attorneys we have proudly represented a woman who went in for minimally invasive surgery and ended up in the hospital for weeks, with massive bills and wage losses. Leaving her children and husband to struggle on one income and keep up with medical bills. We have hired experts and put hours of work into the injury case of a pilot who suffered an electrical shock injury and was unable to return to his profession. We understood the impact this injury had on our client's life and fought for a sizable settlement which will help him cover various expenses while he recovers and seeks to regain some semblance of his former life. No matter what the circumstance or injury when someone is injured through no fault of their own we work tirelessly for our clients to right the wrong, and help put their lives back together.
