WAGE LOSS CLAIM

This type of compensation is for your loss of income and ability to earn income from the time of the accident to the date of the settlement or conclusion of the trial.

It was not your choice to be involved in an accident and you should not have to suffer financially because of it.

An accident may render you unable to work for a short or long period of time. Many employers provide short-term wage loss benefits, which will allow you to keep paying the bills during a short recovery. Unfortunately, not all recoveries are short and not all employers provide adequate and representative wage loss benefits.

Insurance companies who provide long-term benefit policies function like ICBC and want to keep as much money as possible. It is not uncommon for an insurance company to allege that you are able and ready to return to work (even if you are not), so they can avoid paying you wage loss benefits.

These types of accusations by insurance companies can be stressful, and distract you from making efforts to recover from an accident. At Bloom Law we are skilled negotiators who’s job it is to make sure that you get the compensation you are entitled to. We will fight the insurance companies for you including the government’s Workers Compensation Board and WorkSafe BC if the accident took place while you were at work.
