What If I Have to Miss Work Because of a Car Accident?

Car accident attorney lawyerIf you are seriously injured in a car accident, it is important to follow your doctor’s medical advice about what you can and cannot do as a result of your injuries. Your doctor will give you advice about what you should do to improve your medical condition (physical therapy, prescribing medicine, etc.), and also about what you should avoid doing because it could worsen your condition.

Following a doctor’s medical advice is helpful in terms of actually recovering from the injuries you sustained in the car accident, but it is also important for your car accident lawyer’s case that you follow the prescribed course of treatment-including following your doctor’s advice about what activities you should avoid.

There are many leisure activities that you obviously should not do after a car accident injury. For example, marathon-running, rock climbing, and skiing are probably inadvisable after you have suffered a serious strain or sprain in a car accident. Leisure activities such as these, while fun, should be relatively easy for you to put on hold in the aftermath of your injury, especially if you are in severe pain.

One activity you may be tempted to do, even if your car accident injury makes it extremely difficult, is going to work. Medical bills may be piling up, your car could have been damaged or totaled in the accident, and cutting off your main source of income will seem especially difficult because of these financial pressures.

However, if your doctor advises you not to go to work because of your medical condition following your car accident, it is important that you follow his or her advice. An experienced car accident attorney will attempt to recover lost earnings as part of your car accident lawsuit, and a failure to heed your doctor’s advice not to work will be seen by the jury or the opposing party as being noncompliant with your treatment.

If your doctor has advised you not to work because of injuries sustained in a car accident and you want a Orange County car accident attorney to advise you about what to do, please contact Law office of Samer Habbas  at (888) 848-5084 for a free consultation.

The Law Offices of Samer Habbas are not like any other firm I've ever worked with. When I got into a car accident last year, the first person I called was Samer Habbas. I was scared and injured, but he walked me through each step and calmed me down. Every time I call the office, someone picks up the phone. The staff is extremely nice and helpful. I constantly receive updates about my case and don't feel ignored by my lawyers like most people do. I have no doubt that Samer Habbas will get me the money that I deserve. Before you choose a law firm to handle your claim, I would call Samer Habbas. read more

I’ve never used an attorney for an auto claim before, but I have to say that this law firm was an exceptional first experience. From the moment I contacted them to get more info on how they could help me, they have been extremely helpful and super responsive. I communicated with Basim Habbas throughout the process, who did an awesome job of keeping me informed and updated. He answered all of my questions and addressed any concerns I had, and even made it easy to communicate via text - all of which I thoroughly appreciate! The law firm took care of every single aspect of this claim for me - I didn’t have to do anything besides provide the basic info and stay in touch with them. I highly recommend and advise anyone who’s involved with an accident or personal injury claim to use them! They are trustworthy, reliable, and get the job DONE.Thank you guys for everything you did for me, I sincerely appreciate your help.read more

I had such a great experience with Samer Habbas & Associates from the very beginning of working with them. The process was so easy from the start. They came to me to get the details of the accident, they asked me for a few additional documents which I scanned in, and then they took it over completely. In a time of need, they were amazing with taking all the burden off of me and eventually getting me a great result as well. I would highly recommend them to anyone.read more
