How Can I Replace My Income While Seeking Medical Help After an Injury?
If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident and are unable to work as a result of your injuries, you may qualify for income replacement benefits. Income replacement benefits are available to victims whose accident-related injuries prevent them from working at all, or at the level they did prior to the accident. Income replacement benefits provide weekly compensation to adults, children, students, and those who are unemployed and have been injured in a motor vehicle accident.
If you cannot work after a motor vehicle accident, you can recover money for the days of work that you have missed. While the Income Replacement Benefits will not replace your entire income, you may receive payments that will cover up to 70% of your gross weekly income, with a one-week waiting period after the accident. The compensation that you receive will be dependent upon your employment history prior to the crash and you may receive income replacement benefits for up to 104 weeks after the point of disability.
If you’ve been injured in a motor vehicle accident and cannot work, you may qualify for income replacement benefits. After an accident, it is imperative that you consult a personal injury lawyer to ensure that you understand all your rights and options. Our team of personal injury lawyers can help to guide you through the process after your claim.
