Auto accidents in Pennsylvania often cause personal injuries that force innocent accident victims to miss time at work. In today’s economic climate, lost wages due to personal injury can be devastating to families. There are a few options for PA car accident victims who have lost income. First, you should check your auto insurance policy to see if you have lost wages coverage. If you do have lost wages coverage, you should make a claim for your lost income against your own auto insurance policy. Pennsylvania (unlike New Jersey) does NOT offer state disability payments for accident victims. If you have purchased private disability coverage or have a job that provides for disability coverage you should explore your options as soon as possible. Finally, you always have the right to seek lost wages compensation from the driver who caused the PA car accident. Unfortunately, it could take years to get repaid your lost wages from the responsible party.
