Keeping Our Clients Happy - Maryland Injury Lawyers Blog
Posted on behalf of Goldberg Finnegan, LLC on Nov 22, 2012 in Car Accidents
At Goldberg Finnegan, LLC we know that after you have been in a car accident it is a very stressful time. In addition to having to recover from physical injuries, back pain, neck pain and whiplash, car crash victims have often lost their only means of transportation. Our personal injury law firm will do what we can to help you and your family through this difficult time. As a courtesy to our clients we are available to help resolve property damage issues, and in most cases there is no attorney fee at all for this.
Car accidents also often cause people to miss time from work. We will fight hard to recover your lost wages. Many people think that if they were paid for the time that they miss, then they do not have a lost wage claim. Generally speaking, if you miss time from work--even if you are paid for the time missed-you can make a claim for "lost wages" because in fact you are either losing wages or losing leave time. This legal concept is based on the "collateral source rule" which basically means that the person whose negligence caused the accident cannot benefit from the fact that one's employer gave them an employee benefit such as paid time off, paid leave or vacation time.
We recently received favorable feedback from one of our clients and we wanted to share this.
