What If I Have To Miss Work Because Of An Accident?

An accident that results in personal injury can result in missed time at work. Even after you are well enough to return to work, you may have medical appointments or physical therapy that requires time off from work.

While missing work is inconvenient both for you and your employer, it's important to continue your medical treatment until you recover as fully as possible. Here are some problems that can happen if you stop your treatment:

  • You may not recover full mobility or health.
  • You will not have medical documentation of your injuries for your personal injury claim.
  • The insurance company will assume that you are no longer injured and pay you less as a result.

An experienced lawyer can help you recover compensation for all damages, including lost wages for the times you miss work for medical treatment and therapy.
