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.

I was referred to this office by my chiropractor and I was skeptical about it at first because I had never been injured in an accident. I didn't know what...

Samer answered his phone personally when I called his office on a Saturday morning , I had been in a cab in California that hit a tow truck on the interstate a day before as I was In California on business , I’m from Michigan and researched a few attorneys. I was super impressed with Samer , I signed his contract after a 15 min call and he literally put his team to work for me. Corbin , Christine , and Mike all did their level best to make sure I knew each step of the way where I stood. I had a broken wrist from the accident and did receive a very substantial settlement which I was happy to receive. No one could have recovered more that Samer and his team did for me. So out of a terribly bad situation Samer got me a settlement that made things better. I would highly recommend this Law firm. Very smart. Tough , and focused. Thank you so much for taking care of me during a very unusual event in my life. I really appreciate it !!!!read more

I was in an accident a week before Christmas, my car was totaled and my arm was broken in several places. Therefore I was in need of a couple of pretty serious surgeries. Having never been in a car accident and being completely lost as to where I even begin, I was referred to Samer' Law Firm by a co-worker. Within hours of being released from the hospital they had sent someone to my home to take a statement, to began what was a seamless process that surprisingly required very little from me which I was thankful for considering I was out of work for the next 5 weeks with my injuries. I worked closely with Selena Bazan and Mike Habbas, they were both extremely patient in explaining what was completely a foreign process to me. Throughout the entire case I had plenty of questions or needed clarification, they were a phone call or email away to answer and to take the time to explain any and everything to me in detail and address any concern I had. Even when returning back to work if there was something that needed to be taken care of in person they came to me at my office. I was warned by several people who have been in accidents how matters like this can take months on months, even years. As of today my case is resolved! While maintaining professionalism and ensuring that I knew how important my case was to them, I always felt as though they genuinely cared for my well-being and that I received both the medical attention, after care and compensation I deserved. I couldn't be happier with the outcome and the treatment that I received from Samer habbas and Associates.read more
