Remember that story from a few months ago, about the grounding of all 737 MAX airliners in the United States by the president and the FAA? At the time, that particular airliner had been involved in two separate crashes within five months, and the fatalities of nearly 350 people. But the consequence of grounding an entire fleet of planes has directly impacted the earning capacity for upwards of 10,000 pilots, for some 30,000 flights that were cancelled and not renewed. All of which begs an important question: how do you calculate lost wages?
In the case of a car accident, where an injured victim is unable to return to work, lost wages simply refers to seeking compensation for the duration of injury. In other words, lost wages accounts for any time that a victim was, or may still be unable to earn an income. The benefit of having an experienced attorney involved in a claim over lost wages is that your attorney can take additional factors into account, including the loss of earning potential, for future hours not yet tabulated, but still impacted.
