Q: If I miss work as a result of a Florida car accident, can my lost wages be recovered?
Yes, car insurance that you own or that you have does allow for 60% of your provable wages. If you’re employed, your car insurance company will look at the average of your last 13 weeks salary. However, if you’re self employed, the answer is more complicated. Your car insurance company will pay for 60% of your lost wages based on income tax returns from previous years. For those people that are self employed, it’s not quite as cut and dry as it is for those who have an employer and a set salary or wage.
