If I miss work as a result of a Mississippi car accident, can my lost wages be recovered?

Yes, one of the elements of damages in a negligence lawsuit, such as a car wreck is lost wages, for which you can make a claim. And so what you would do is, your employer would document, and you would get a statement from your employer what your loss of time plus your either hourly rate or your lost earnings were, and then you would make a claim. Our office makes those types of claims for our clients on a regular basis.
