If I miss work as a result of a Florida car accident can my lost wages be recovered?
If you miss time from work due to a Florida car accident, and you’re injured from that car accident, the answer is yes. If you have PIP benefits, which most people do and are required to have under the law if they own a vehicle, that’s personal injury protection benefits, they will pay up to $10,000 of medical bills and lost wages. The lost wages are paid at 60% of your average weekly wage, which is calculated over a 13 week period prior to your accident.
Additionally, if those benefits, those PIP benefits, are used in medical, and you still have lost wages, you can recover your lost wages at the end of the case, from the defendant driver, in pursuing a claim against their insurance company.
