The amount of time that you had to take off of work or use your Paid Time Off benefits is recoverable from the at-fault driver’s insurance company. It is important that you keep a good log of the hours/date you missed because of the accident and because of your medical appointments.
It is also necessary that you try to schedule your appointments around your work schedule, if possible, in an effort to reduce your losses. If you don’t, it may not be allowed. Ideally, your doctor supports the time you have taken off work to heal and feel better and if so, it is a good idea to get your doctor to prepare an OFF WORK note so that it supports the time you had to take off because of your injuries.
At Zachar Law Firm, we have experienced attorneys and assistants who can guide you through this process, provide forms for doctors and employers to sign, so that you are ensured a recovery from this time and money you’ve lost as a result of your accident.
