Video Summary

  • Insurance company for the at-fault party rarely pays lost wages directly.
  • Lost wages are typically part of a broader settlement that includes medical bills and pain and suffering.
  • While negotiating the settlement, consider three alternative paths for relief: employer-provided short-term/long-term disability, personal disability or accident policies, or seeking help from family and friends.
  • Immediate payments after an accident can be obtained through employer-provided disability policies.
  • It's essential to seek guidance from an injury attorney during this difficult time to make the best decisions for the claim.
