Whenever you are involved in a Wichita Falls car accident that was caused by someone else, you are entitled to be compensated for the losses you incurred from that accident by other driver’s insurance company. This compensation is often referred to as damages in personal injury claims, and they include property damage, medical expenses, lost earnings, and lost of earning capacity, among other things.
Lost earning capacity comes into play when you are injured to the extent that you either cannot work anymore or you cannot perform your job duties the same way you did before. There is a multitude of factors that must be considered to determine lost earning capacity such as the extent of your injuries, your current job title and your past experience, your salary, your skills and education, your age and life expectancy, and further economic projections relevant to your field of work. Because of these damages are complex, an expert is needed to calculate and prove them.
