How lost wages from a work injury affect your life

An injury suffered on the job can wind up costing you a lot, especially in lost wages. The longer you miss time at work, the more likely it is that you will miss out on a proper salary. You need to report your work injury immediately, seek medical care and consult an attorney to protect your rights. Here's how lost wages from a work injury can affect your life.

As you might expect, an injury suffered on the job in Wisconsin can keep you from working for a lengthy period. This will inevitably lead to lost wages. The lost wages will have a spiraling impact on your life as a whole. Losing out on your complete income will cause you to struggle paying the bills, paying rent, paying the mortgage and even buying necessities like food and clothing.

Losing wages in a workplace injury can also have a negative impact on your medical care. With a reduction in income, will you be able to keep your health insurance? Will you be able to pay for out-of-pocket medical expenses? It can be difficult to predict this, but you should be prepared for medical bills to pile up while out of work.

Lost wages can also cause you to enter into debt if you don't already have debt. This debt can become overwhelming if there is no other source of income available for your family.

There are a lot of ways a workplace injury can wind up affecting your life negatively. Lost wages are just one of those ways. You could wind up not being able to return to work full-time. You also might have trouble paying your monthly bills.
