Lost Wages Insurance Coverage
In Pennsylvania, if you've added coverage for lost wages on your car insurance policy, then your insurer will pay you at 80% of your gross wages up to the limits specified on your policy. However, the insurance company won't pay you for the first five days of missed work.
Pennsylvania required minimum Income Loss Benefits coverage:
Our law firm's recommended minimum:
- At least $1,000/month
- $5,000 total
If your income is more than $1,000 per month, we recommend increasing this coverage to reflect your after-tax earnings. That way your compensation will be 80% of your actual pay.
No Insurance for Lost Wages?
If you didn't add Income Loss benefits on your insurance policy and weren't the at-fault driver, you may still be able to recover lost pay. By hiring our attorneys, we'll work to make sure you get compensation for your income loss, as well as:
- Pain & Suffering
- Unpaid Medical Bills
- Past/Future Surgeries
- Physical Therapy
- And More
Don't miss out on the money you need to support yourself and your loved ones. We'll help you plan for the future and prepare you for any unexpected medical costs. Don't hesitate. There may be time limits to your injury claim.
