After your Kentucky car accident injury it is important to document your lost wage claim. This can be a simple but important step. Begin gathering your W-2's and tax returns for the last five or so years. This will help prove what your average or typical earnings were before you were hurt in the automobile accident. If you are self-employed, document all work you have lost (contracts, jobs, customers) or other ways the accident has cost you work, income or money. When you go to your doctor appointments request off-work slips documenting the fact that you have lost time from work. These are all documents that are powerful proof of income loss and will allow your attorney to prove all the harms and economic damages you have sustained after your Kentucky car accident.
