In regards to truck accidents, a loss of earning capacity is a loss of income stemming from a serious injury caused by a trucking accident. A personal injury victim who is disabled has to prove that the losses sustained were a direct and proximate result of a trucking company or truck driver’s negligence or wrongdoing. This can be shown by requiring the injured party to present evidence showing their future earning capacity, if it had been higher, may have been diminished as a direct consequence of the injuries they suffered in an accident. In other words, if your earning capacity is reduced due to an injury you suffered in a truck accident that was not your fault, then you should seek financial compensation for those impaired earnings through litigation. It is important to contact us so we can determine whether you have a good case and what steps must be taken next.

Am I Eligible to Recover a Loss of Earning Capacity as a Damage?
The ability to recover a loss of earning capacity as a damage through civil litigation will depend on the severity of your injuries, how they affect your earning capacity, and whether or not you can prove that the accident was caused by someone else’s negligence. If you are no longer able to work due to an injury sustained in any type of trucking accident, you may be entitled to recover a loss of earning capacity. In general, if you are unable to work again or if you missed out on a promotion, you may be able to get financial compensation for your losses.
Do Lawyers Help Prove a Loss of Earning Capacity?
Many personal injury lawyers will handle cases involving a loss of earning capacity as a damage. The crucial factor in an individual’s ability to recover losses that stem from a truck accident is proving they have suffered and will continue to suffer an actual and substantial physical impairment due to their injuries after the accident. This means they cannot work, or can only do so with considerable difficulty, and that they will be unable to maintain their previous level of income in the immediate future.
