A central part of many Baltimore area residents' lives is their job. Individuals depend on having a steady source of income from their job in order to provide for themselves and their family, and earn a living. Accordingly, when individuals are not able to work for extended periods of time, it can cause a hardship on their finances, with devastating results to follow if they cannot make up that lost income.

Unfortunately, this is often the case for those who have been injured in an auto accident, because their injuries may make it near impossible to go back to work for a significant period of time. For instance, a Maryland State Trooper recently returned to work after months of being cared for after she was hurt in an auto accident. The accident, which occurred last fall, was caused by a passing car who struck the officer.

The police officer suffered a traumatic brain injury as a result of the incident, causing her to spend more than a month in the hospital. The officer is still hesitant about driving again, and she experiences lingering effects from the injury. Meanwhile, the driver involved in the crash was cited for the crash, including for being a negligent driver.

For many individuals, an extended period away from work can cause severe financial troubles, particularly after the person exhausts all of their leave policies. Fortunately, through a personal injury lawsuit, injured persons can recover damages for the lost wages they suffered as a result of an injury.

Through the lawsuit, the person will be able to show the wages they lost from the date of the injury until the conclusion of the case, and what those wages would have been if they had been able to work during that time. The recovery of damages can be an essential element of getting the person's finances back in order and moving on from the incident.
